New Vision University medical school students Anna Adamia, Tamta Cholikidze, and Mariam Natsvlishvili participated in Antwerp Medical Students Congress held in Antwerp, Belgium on September 9-14.
The purpose of the Congress was to share knowledge and research accumulated by medical students across Europe. Up to 100 students from different universities were given the opportunity to get acquainted with Belgian medical practice and attend sessions led by professors and members of the Antwerp University Research Council.
As part of the exchange, Tata Cholikidze and Mariam Natsvlishvil, NVU medical students, presented their thesis, which focused on the importance of screening in diabetic patients. The students shared results of their research, which enrolled 130 patients, to the audience at the opening session of the Congress opening session.
Anna Adamia also presented her own work at the Congress. Her thesis focused on the correlation between academic performance and sleep among students.
Students’ participation in the Antwerp Medical Students Congress was made possible through the leadership and co-funding led by the Administration at New Vision University.
The Congress, organized by the European Medical Students Association, has been held in various European countries for thirteen years.
