Theme event 1: Lessons from COVID 19 - a world transformed

COVID 19 pandemic, caused by the newly discovered SARS-CoV-2, is considered to be the defining health crisis of our time and the greatest challenge the world has faced since WW2.
Even though the outbreak was first identified in December 2019, the unpredictable nature of the virus has put medical workers and scientists at a long and challenging quest to find the cure and save lives.
It is known that the virus that causes COVID-19 is mainly transmitted through droplets generated when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or exhales.
The majority of people will experience mild to moderate symptoms such as fever, dry cough, loss of smell or taste, tiredness; and recover without special treatment. However, in the minority of cases the disease takes a more severe course in the form of pneumonia, acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), multi-organ failure, septic shock, and death.
Despite everything we have learned about COVID19 disease so far, there is more to be discovered. Through the lessons of our esteemed guests, who are experts in the fields of microbiology, epidemiology, infectious diseases, and psychiatry, you will have a chance to learn and discuss the inner workings of SARS-CoV-2, as well as its consequences on physical and mental health.

Theme event 2: Organ transplantation

Organ transplantation is the process of surgically transferring a donated organ to someone diagnosed with organ failure. There are so many diseases that can lead to organ failure and once the organ becomes destroyed, there is no way to fix it. The only option is transplantation. Every healthcare provider around the globe should be motivated and educated to perform organ transplantation. Could you imagine yourself as the patient with chronic kidney disease who needs dialysis almost every day because the transplantation isn’t a provided solution for you? You shouldn’t be denied surgical care that could save your life, even if you live in a low or middle-income country. Healthcare must be provided for everyone and everywhere! Is the organ transplantation privilege that could be offered only to the privileged citizens of high-income countries or is it a need that should be a treatment option for every patient who needs it, no matter where he/she lives? Who is responsible? Who decides?
Visit Theme event ORGAN TRANSPLANTATION: PRIVILEGE OR NEED, and help us answer these questions!

Medical research

Medical research involves a wide range of fields, such as biology, chemistry, pharmacology and toxicology with the goal of developing new medicines or medical procedures as well as improving the application of those already available.
While diagnostic examination aims to help one particular patient with his condition, research projects try to gather information in order to find new medical solutions for a wide range of patients with the same or similar condition.
The importance and benefits of medical research became even more emphasized with the ongoing pandemic and lack of knowledge about the newly discovered Covid-19 virus.
In times when knowledge and right information can save lives we have chosen medical research as an appropriate theme to discuss on this year's congress. Even though the basics of medical research are learned through med school, we want to provide a wider picture about everything what it takes to conduct a research that will have strong impact in terms of scientific value, but also to inspire young, ambitious doctors to start their journey as research scientists for a better and safer medical future.

Case Report Evening

We are happy to announce that the „Case report evening – facing the unknown” is going to take place at SAMED 2021.
This particular event is a panel discussion in which medical experts will solve medical cases on certain topics in the presence of the audience.
The main objective of this event is to describe the unfolding of a particular medical problem in details: doctor's approach and the way of solving problem which includes treatment of patients. The central part of the case reports evening is a live discussion, carried out by the experts who will critically and scientifically solve, explain and give comments on each case, in a way that makes it possible for the audience to participate and ask questions related to the topic.
Panel discussion highlights the multi-dimensionality of the issue and it helps to develop critical and logical thinking in both panelists and the audience.
