The 8th edition of the medical student competition

About us

The international competition MedGames 2023 will take place on October 13-14, 2023, at the premises of Jessenius Faculty of Medicine, Comenius University, and University Hospital Martin. This year’s MedGames will mark the eighth edition of the medical and nursing student competition.

Our goal is to apply the students’ acquired theoretical knowledge into practice and thus help future doctors and nurses in their future work. We aim to enhance students’ preclinical and clinical skills. Therefore, the competition tasks will mainly focus on practical skills and knowledge, which they will acquire using state-of-the-art training simulators at the Simulated Training Center of JFMED. They will have the opportunity to practice procedures such as laparoscopic suturing on a simulator, surgical suturing, or intubation. For the participants, case studies will be prepared, derived from the real experiences of doctors from various specialties. Through standardized patients, the students will be able to experience the role of a physician. During the competition, students will be evaluated not only on their professional performance but also on their approach to patients. They will have the chance to work with medical equipment used by physicians. Thanks to cooperation with doctors from different departments, the students will be guided by experts and will be able to consult individual cases with them.

The goal of our competition is to educate students not only from Slovakia but also from abroad. We want to teach students to communicate better with patients and to improve their teamwork skills. This competition aims to demonstrate that Slovakia possesses high-quality teaching equipment as well as quality education. To achieve this, our competition will be open to the public and will also be covered by the media.
