The year’s coming to an end, but Wrocław’s Polish Congress Ambassadors are not stopping. In spite of rain, cold, frost, warm or storm they are still working not only towards making Wrocław more attractive on the international market, but also to improve the situation in our country on many levels.
In June MD Jacek Szepietowski PHD was elected the president of Polish Dermatological Society. On 16 of august he gave an interview on improving the medical situation in the country, where he mentioned an exodus of qualified doctors to the private sector, which could be solved with additional funding for public medical institutions.
From 28 to 30 of september the thirteenth edition of the international conference, Okulistyka-Kontrowersje(Ophthalmology-Controversies), which was organised by one of our Ambassadors Prof. Marta Misiuk-Hojło, took place in Wrocław.
And from 1 to 4 October Jerzy Klijanienko, MD, PHD and Paweł Gajdzis, MD, PHD, participated in the 44th Cytology Congress as members of the international advisory committee. During the event, medical specialists from across Europe discussed innovative methods for conducting gynaecological examinations.
Patrycja Matusz, Ph.D., acting vice-chancellor at the University of Wrocław, aims to improve the quality of science in our country. Recently, on her Facebook profile, she described the difficult financial situation of the National Science Centre(NCN). On 16 October, she took part in a meeting entitled ‘Erasmus+ and micro-certifications’, during which experts discussed how micro-certifications, i.e. confirmations of learning outcomes resulting from short educational experiences, can influence the development of universities and other institutions.
At the same time, Prof. Dariusz Adamski is trying to rectify the economic and judicial situation in Poland by calling for changes in the judiciary and state-owned companies in the pages of Rzeczpospolita.
We wish our professors well, hoping their pace will only accelerate.
