"There are very few training areas in higher education where there is such a close proximity between what is studied and the future exercise of a profession, as is the case with Medicine. However, exposure to various specialities, to which students are subject during their academic training does not always facilitate their future choice. This will be an option for the entirety of their professional life and the time they have available to mature this choice is not always enough. In that sense, having the opportunity to be able to listen to young interns who pass on their experience, the decision-making process that led to their choices and their professional experience may be important to help them define the path that they want to follow".
- Dr. Luís Pereira, Executive Director of FMUL
