More And Better
Initiative “Reception and Enrolment of First Year Students – First time” 2014/2015
On the week of 8 to 12 of September the Faculty of Medicine welcomed its new students with the initiative “Reception and Enrolment of First Year Students – First time”. The students (293 – 1st year/1st time | 5 through extraordinary admission | 45 with a degree) who enrolled for the first time in the Faculty of Medicine had a reception especially prepared for them. Upon arrival at FMUL, they were greeted by our mascot “Fmulito” and were given the opportunity to watch an institutional video about e-learning, the administrative area and optical reading exams. Afterwards, they enrolled online. The freshmen kit was also given to them – a briefcase with some information which will help them know better that which will be, for the next 6 years, their home.
After the enrolment, new students were invited to get to know the faculty: the Students Association of the Faculty of Medicine, University of Lisbon; Caixa Geral de Depósitos; the Library; the Lockers; The Association Friends of Santa Maria Hospital; SASUL (the Social Action in Higher Education); CP; the Lions Club of Lisbon Alvalade.
This initiative, which involved several people who are not part of the teaching staff at FMUL, aimed at conveying to the newly-arrived students the following message: Welcome to FMUL!
