Research Day has become a milestone on the agenda of the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Lisbon (FMUL) and the Students Association of the Faculty of Medicine of Lisbon (AEFML). This is the result of a collaboration between the Office for the Support to Scientific and Technological Research and Innovation (GAPIC) and the AEFML and has been increasingly successful with students, since scientific and clinical research is an added value for them in terms of curriculum and personal development.
As FMUL students, it is a privilege to be part of the Lisbon Medical Academic Centre (CAML), which allows us to have contact with the frontiers of the development of science and clinical practice, while completing our undergraduate education.
Research Day is thus a high occasion that brings together all those interested in the area of research, as well as all FMUL students who, for a year, challenge themselves to explore the world of research. In this context, this event also enhances and encourages the taste for research in all students who are starting their undergraduate training and have not yet had the opportunity to be involved in a research project. It is undoubtedly a unique moment that brings together students and CAML’s renowned researchers, often inspiration models for FMUL students.
In the long run, Research Day contributes to the training of more informed doctors with a greater capacity for international prominence, not forgetting that it can even contribute decisively so that several careers are dedicated to research.
This year, in the 8th Edition of Research Day, AEFML wanted to reinforce its contribution to, and support of, research, attributing the AEFML Awards - Research Day to the winning students of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd places of the “Education through Science” (PEC) Programme projects, in order to support the continuance of research, as well as the dissemination of these projects in national and international congresses. It is undoubtedly an honour for the AEFML to reinforce its contribution to supporting science year after year, in collaboration with the GAPIC.
