Students` Scientific Activity (ŠVOČ) is a voluntary activity at Jessenius Faculty of Medicine in Martin. It is a possibility how a student can be joined into real medical research. ŠVOČ itself leads the student to scientific thinking and creative work. It can be a good basis for a diploma thesis as well as a good first step for future medical practice. Another benefit can be an advantage during the selection process for international mobility.
