Building a career that will not eventually leave you feeling regret for wasting your life. Understanding global trends to navigate your professional development. Taking on a challenge of changing the world and yourself.
The Institute for Urology and Reproductive Health is opening a study circle where all walks of medicine are welcome – young doctors, postgraduates and students regardless of faculties. Holding discussions with young scientists are going to be inventors of new techniques and authors of novel technologies. This is the idea that gave rise to the name of the study circle — the Pioneers.
The Pioneers does not divide its members according to specialty. Quite the contrary. Its mission is to grant young minds a chance to take a broader look at their profession and life goals. Here you can discuss potential for development, innovations, challenges inherent in certain professions and possible career trajectories. You can personally talk to people who managed to reach impressive heights and not only ask them for their opinion but voice your own during a presentation or discussion. The Pioneers offers such an opportunity.
“The study circle will aid the university in growing into an internationally recognized center for innovations – a strategy set in motion by the rector, Petr Glybochko,” said Dmitry Enikeev, deputy director for science. “We need to foster appropriate environments for realizing the academic potential of young scientists. Not only do we have to provide them with cutting-edge equipment but also create a comfortable medium for professional growth. Nothing motivates better than a story of personal success and a possibility to upgrade one’s skills among the best in the field. The Pioneers will help them on this journey.”
The first meeting is going to feature a true legend – Ralph V. Clayman, a professor at the University of California. He founded one of the leading journals, the Journal of Endourology, authored laparascopic techniques of kidney removal and resection for renal cancer and was one of the inventors of endoscopic surgery for urolithiasis. Professor Clayman developed 14 instruments for laparoscopic and endoscopic surgery and founded the world’s first training program in minimally invasive surgery now regarded as benchmark.
The meeting with professor Clayman is scheduled for 9 October. It will take place at 9:30 in the Pytel Lecture Hall, Institute for Urology and Reproductive Health, Sechenov University.
All participants wishing to attend the meting have to be registered.
The event is a joint effort by the Institute for Urology and Reproductive Health and the Institute of Linguistics and Intercultural Communication.
