The CHP Program actually gave me the necessary knowledge to set even more precise and clearer goals in terms of my medical education while giving me the opportunity to decide which specialties are better for me and which aren't suitable for me. I had really learned a lot! Besides loads of medical knowledge, I also learned about important aspects of doctors' careers like balancing private life and successful career, time management and important characteristics every doctor should possess. All three of my mentors, Dr. Bartošova, Dr. Vrabcova and Dr. Pavličkova were giving their best to teach me and show me as much as possible in just one week. The amount of time which they devote to me was above my expectations and they truly had treated me as their fellow colleague. While being more than professional, they had also created warm and friendly teaching atmosphere and were always happy to answer my questions (which I had a lot :-)). The departments chosen for tutorials are really suitable for us to get brief introduction in other medical fields and experience the cooperation between different departments. The tutorials I found the most interesting was suturing techniques as I also gained valuable practical skills. For Ms. Barbora and Daniel, I have nothing but gratitude as they were being supportive, motivating and inspiring throughout my whole week. They truly encouraged us to get the most of our experience and were always there with helpful pieces of advice for us.

Who can be in your specialty mentoring team?

Bc. Martina Marková

It sounds very nice when you say to someone that your job is to take care of human hearts. Working in cardiology is beautiful and satisfying. Patients come to our department feeling very sick. After treatment, most of them go home healthy, or at least their quality of life becomes significantly better. My daily tasks - the procedures I participate in and my interaction with patients – make me feel...

I started to study medicine with the clear goal to become a surgeon, specifically in cardiology. I like the challenge of being the one on whom the fate of an organ or a limb depends. During my university studies I was taking internships in hospital and assisting in minor surgeries. I was so proud and excited when I got into the Cardiovascular Surgery Specialized Center as during that time a specif...
