New tool for MUG students and teachers


Besides their notes and textbooks, MUG students now have a new tool: films. The employees of the MUG Department of Preventive Medicine and Education together with a Gdańsk filmmaker Paweł Sudara completed a set of five educational films. Four of them show the details of physical examination, while the fifth is about hand disinfection and protection from infections. The idea to make the films came directly from MUG medical students, who during their 3rd year of studies asked for a consistent example of physical examination.

- At first we demonstrated physical examination on a volunteer during a lecture. That was not a good solution, so we decided to record physical examination on film – remembers prof. Tomasz Zdrojewski (head of the Department of Preventive Medicine and Didactics). – We worked quickly, filmed a lot of material and editing was a challenge – remarks filmmaker Paweł Sudara. – Thankfully a team of doctors collaborated on this project and they were very helpful. more »
