We proudly inform that in the academic year 2010 and 2011 ENT Department of the Nicolaus Copernicus University began teaching program for ERASMUS students. In our dept. we presented methods of examination, basic anatomy and physiology and clinical aspects of our speciality for foreign students. We put special attention in oncology and emergencies in ENT and first aid procedures. We also practically showed all methods of patients’ examination and presented methods of treatment in our operation theatre.

Shaping attitudes:

  1. Awareness of cancer and life-threatening conditions in otolaryngology: every physician should be able to examine the pharynx, nose, ear, neck nodes, and thus to make an initial diagnosis, especially pertaining to a suspected disease requiring immediate and urgent intervention.
  2. Good interpersonal skills in contacts with the patient in terms of providing most important information in otolaryngology, and using relevant terminology
  3. Sensitivity to patients’ suffering, to their care of their own health, to pain and discomfort of ENT examinations – focusing on being very careful in tests and examinations performed with the use of instruments during ENT examinations.
  4. Skills consisting in directing the patient to undergo relevant ENT diagnostic examinations, properly prepared referrals for additional ENT examinations, knowledge of usefulness of specific examinations.
