How does it work?

*The current recruitment process will unfold exclusively in English, therefore we are welcoming eligible applications from both Romanian and English section students.

Fill out the form

Please proceed to fill out the intention form below. Kindly ensure all fields are completed accurately and responsibly to facilitate the enrollment process.

Attend the interview

Based on the details you provided in the form, you will be contacted by one of the members of the Executive Committee to arrange a date and time for your interview. This does not require prior preparation and does not involve knowledge testing. It is an opportunity for us to get to know each other and determine if your goals align with those of SideMED.

Attend training sessions

Our main objective is to provide high-quality extracurricular medical education. In this regard, every SideMED member participates in preparations both before joining the Society and before each organized event. The purpose of the preparations during the recruitment process is to review the information covered in the Basic Surgical Techniques workshop, focusing on the practical explanations we provide to participants. At the end of the preparations, it is important not only to know the material but also to be able to explain it like a SideMED trainer.

Theoretical evaluation

If you have reached this point, you will participate in a multiple-choice theoretical evaluation covering the material included in the Basic Surgical Techniques workshop.

Practical evaluation

Successful completion of the theoretical examination enables access to the final step in the enrollment process. You will participate in an evaluation where you will explain practical techniques included in the Basic Surgical Techniques workshop as a SideMED trainer would present them to a participant. Merely knowing the practical techniques is not sufficient. You must understand the techniques well enough to present them to students attending the events.

*Each stage may be eliminatory.

Deadline: 28th February 2024
