Facultas Nostra 2022, December - Editorial

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.

Prof. Pavel Fiala memorial Charity Run

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.

We say goodbye to old buildings

Facultas nostra 2022, June 

Almost from the very beginning of the existence of the Faculty of Medicine in Pilsen, generations of its students went through the buildings "Procháskáč" and "Pavlák", in which - among others – the Faculty of Medicine in Pilsen had its seat. Students that will start their first year in October this year will be the first to no longer visit these buildings. The construction of the new campus in Lochotín is completed, moving awaits us in the summer. "The end of an era," people say at such moments. In this farewell, let us recall the history associated with the Procháska and Pavlov institutes.

What is happening at the construction site?

Facultas nostra 2022, June 

Dear readers, 

Since the last publication in February 2018, we have been bringing you this section, which brings you closer to what is happening around the construction of our new campus. We started with the report on cutting the trees on the land next to the building of Department of Languages. The land was being prepared to be handed over to the construction company, which was not even known yet, because a selection procedure was yet to come. After four years, this is the last article. The term „construction site“ is no longer relevant for our campus. The building is complete, we received an approval from the Building Authority between May and June.

Do you look forward to the new canteen?

Facultas nostra 2022, April 

One of the necessities of a modern campus is a place where staff and students are be able to satisfy their taste buds and spend time in a pleasant modern environment, whether during breakfast, lunch, or dinner. This place will be our new canteen. You will find it on the two floors of the Dean's Office wing. There will be modern, automatic appliances, with an efficient layout and a high standard of hygienic safety, which are comparable to the performance of the best kitchens. Cooling and freezing boxes are equipped with sensors for central control of cooling and freezing processes. Large-capacity multifunctional cooking appliances with gentle processing of raw materials or automatic meat processing are an example of what modern kitchens will look like in the future. The combi ovens can be controlled from a computer or from home with a mobile application that will allow cooking even overnight. The kitchen is also equipped with a modern ceiling exhaust hood. The entire ceiling is made of stainless steel and can be very easily disassembled and washed in a dishwasher.

Would you like to live a long and healthy life? Then walk!

Facultas nostra 2022, April

According to accessible statistical data, an average American walks 3-4 thousand steps a day. This will probably also apply to an average Czech (or let’s say an average employee or a student of our faculty).

It is clear that modern population does not meet the recommendation of the WHO of taking 10 thousand steps a day. It is true that this recommendation has been based more on experts’ views rather than on solid scientific data. Nevertheless, Lancet Journal brings now a large meta-analysis of 15 other studies aiming at the correlation between the number of steps per day and mortality hazard.

How is the living with medical students?

Facultas nostra 2022, April

Everyone who has the “luck” to have a medical student – medic – friend or even lives with one, will realize, in time, that this cohabitation brings many responsibilities with it, and not all are pleasant to a human. Actually, none is.

I Have a Dream

Facultas nostra 2022, April – Editorial

As a well-bred schoolchild and pioneer, I spent the summer of 1968 on a family vacation in Sochi. An organized tour with my Mom to the coastal sanatorium Zarja, from where the sea was only 300 steps away welcoming us by a mass warm-up exercise from a loudspeaker. After our arrival from the sunny seaside resort at the Black Sea, I stayed with my grandma in Prague where I enjoyed not only the ZOO, but also museums, mainly the Technical Museum.
