Academics, guests from the ranks of politicians and public administration, representatives of construction contractors and other guests gathered on Tuesday, November 8, at a festive gathering in the new faculty building to mark the 77th anniversary of the founding of the faculty and to symbolically launch the operation of the completed University Medical Centre. Its construction began in 2012, with the first phase completed in 2014. Now all theoretical medical teaching has moved to the modern campus in Lochotín.

More than a year after the untimely death of Ass. Prof. RNDr. Pavel Fiala, CSc., his legacy lives on in the hearts of those who knew him. For those who met him, as well as for those who were not so lucky, the international students of our faculty organized an event in which they remembered the memory of an excellent anatomist and a popular pedagogue who, as vice-dean for parallel teaching in English, was in charge of foreign students and went through their stay in Pilsen with them from their admission to the faculty to their graduation.
On Thursday, November 24, visitors to our campus experienced increased movement of wheelchair users on campus. This was thanks to an outreach event by the Paraple Center, a well-known non-profit that helps people in wheelchairs after spinal cord injury and their families cope with difficult life situations.
People say that the years ending with an 8 have a special meaning for the Czech country. The years 1848, 1918, 1938, 1948 and 1968 have always represented a historical turning point that influenced our society for a long time. The years 1939 and 1989, in particular, are associated with the month of November, where students, especially university students, played a dominant historical role. November is also intertwined with other historical dates that have influenced developments in our countries for a long time.
