Describe the teaching methods (theory, practical and projects) and assessment of students:
Stážovala som na oddelení chirurgie. Každý deň sa spravili vizity a potom sa písali ordinácie, správy a odoberali sme vzorky do laboratória. Bolo možné absolvovať aj nočné služby alebo tzv. on call služby v poobedňajších hodinách.
Mávali sme aj teachingy a taktiež mohli absolvovať školenia pre starších doktorov. Absolvovali sme simulácie, pri ktorých sme boli predstavení situácii a museli sa zachovať ako vyštudovaní doktori.

Quality of teaching in comparison with home school:
Bezpochyby som získlala viac praktických znalostí.

Keď bolo nutné, všetci boli ochotní vytisknúť, čo sme potrebovali.

Teachingy pre F1 a F2 doktorov

Practical questions on your placement
Where did you live?:
Bývali sme v byte, ktorý nám poskytla priamo nemocnica.

Cost of accommodation - monthly:
260 EUR

Additional comments to the price of accommodation (as to what the price includes):
V byte sme bývali 2, každá mala samostatnú izbu. Bol pekne zariadený - Kuchyňa, práčka a veľká obývačka.

Describe the equipment. Tips for future students – what should they bring with them?:
Najslabšie bola vybavená kuchyňa, ale myslím, že všetko sa dá kúpiť na mieste.

How and how far ahead should accommodation be organised?:
Ubytovanie bolo poskytnuté nemocnicou.

What are the catering options?:
V nemocnici bola jedáleň, v blízkosti ubytovania veľký supermarket.

What are the rough costs of groceries (compare with Czech prices):
Dajú sa porovnať s cenami v ČR (čo sa týka supermarketov).

Letela som do Liverpoolu z Prahy a z letiska ide priamo spoj až do mestečka, v ktorom je nemocnica.

Rough prices for transportation:
spiatočný let cca 150 eur

Tips for purchasing cheap tickets and other recommendations:
Je možné zakúpiť si railcard do 26 rokov, s ktorou potom máte 30 percent zĽavu na lístky-vlaky, autobusy. Odporúčam!

What are the local transport options (public transport, cycling, on foot, rough prices):
Bývali sme hneď pri vlkaovej stanici (mesto Precot), cesta do Liverpoolu trvala 30 minút. Cesta do nemocnice trvala 15 minút pešo. Tam som MHD nevyužívala.

What kind of formalities have to be arranged before arrival, for example residence permit?:
Podpísať nájomnú zmluvu a prevziať si nemocničnú identifikačnú kartu.

What health insurance did you use? (rough price, advantages, disadvantages, is it necessary to arrange insurance at the university other than your home (Czech) insurance?):

ja som mala ešte poistenie vlastné, ktoré som si ale vybavovala na rok ešte v lete.
