What is Youth for Medicine?
It is a course aimed at 1st and 2nd year baccalaureate interested in degrees related to medicine. The main objective is for the students to know closely how to work in a hospital from assistance to research. They will be able to do a tasting of how different diseases are diagnosed and treated, and what research is being carried out to better understand them and find more effective treatments to combat them.
The program consists of 16 theoretical-practical sessions on different Saturdays, which take place between the months of February and May. Most sessions take place virtually. In these sessions, the different services and specialties that exist within a hospital are discussed. Among others they will treat heart diseases, liver diseases, diabetes, obesity, alcoholism, eye or skin diseases, neurosciences, immunology, or cancer.
