Head of Department
Department V Internal Medicine I of the University of Medicine and Pharmacy “Victor Babes” Timisoara includes six disciplines: Medical Semiology I, Medical Semiology II, Occupational Medicine, Haematology, Internal Medicine IV (CFR) and Practical Clinical Skills.
The educational base for the six disciplines consists of clinical sections and compartments that operate in the pavilions of the Timisoara Municipal Emergency Clinical Hospital, in the Timisoara CFR University Hospital, in the Timisoara Military University Hospital, as well as in the Simulation Centre for the training of Clinical Skills (in the basement of the second medical home).
In these disciplines follow courses and internships students of years II, III, IV, V and VI of the Faculty of Medicine, as well as students from the faculties of Dentistry, Dental Technique, General Health Care and Balneal-physio-kineto-therapy and Recovery. Resident doctors in medical specialties are also trained here.
Bringing the six disciplines together within the same department, their members have the opportunity to get to know each other and apply their expertise for interdisciplinary collaboration. The easy access to information, the application of evidence-based medicine, the knowledge and experience of each teacher, the specific endowments, some of the top, give the possibility to carry out research topics of common interest.
The staff of department V aims to train true doctors, dedicated to their patients and the medical profession, to induce in students a love for the disciplines studied, to provide a solid theoretical basis and appropriate clinical practical skills. Students are encouraged to work, to ask questions, to collaborate in activities at the patient’s bedside and in research, in order to form their medical thinking, based on study, work and exercise.
Each discipline, with its specificity, contributes to the training of young doctors. The knowledge and experience gained during the student period will greatly contribute to the correct medical decision in the subsequent activity. Respect and compassion for the sick person are gained by being with him, listening to him and observing him carefully during the anamnesis, a key element common to all medical specialties. Young doctors need to understand that the patient is a partner in the decision-making process.
