    The aim of the meeting of the Rector of Charles University in Prague with the Faculty Board was the interest in deepening cooperation and efforts to internationalize the activities of the Faculty of Medicine, UPJŠ. The visit of prof. Tomáš Zima at UPJŠ in Košice and UPJŠ FM was preceded by recent visits of the Rector of Pavol Jozef Šafárik University in Košice, prof. RNDr. Pavol Sovák, CSc. And the Dean of UPJŠ FM prof. Daniel Pella, M.D., PhD. at the 1st Faculty of Medicine of Charles University and the Senate of the Parliament of the Czech Republic in Prague. Nowadays, the preparations for the first joint project, the creation of an external workplace of the FM UPJŠ in Prague, are being finalized.


    As the Rector of Charles University, prof. Tomáš Zima, M.D., DrSc., MBA stated, the mutual cooperation between Charles University and UPJŠ and their faculties of medicine, especially the FM UPJŠ and the 1st Faculty of Medicine, Charles University, has long-standing roots and has lasted for decades. The establishment of a branch of the FM UPJŠ in Prague would further deepen mutual cooperation and helps to share the acquired knowledge in the field of medicine.
    The Dean of the FM UPJŠprof. Daniel Pella, M.D., PhD. took the opportunity to publicly thank the Rector of Charles University and the management of the 1st Faculty of Medicine of Charles University for their intensive support of this idea at the meeting. Subsequently, the Vice-Dean for Grants, Development and International Relations prof. Monika Halánová, D.V.M., PhD. presented the current activities of the FM UPJŠ in the field of international projects, within which our Faculty of Medicine is very successful, as it is the investigator of four Horizon 2020 projects and other important international activities. The fact that the FM UPJŠ covers the activities of the national research infrastructure SLOVACRIN significantly contributed to their implementation.
    The Rector of Charles University also took the opportunity to visit the newly created Center of Simulator and Virtual Medicine, which will be the largest and most modern in the Slovak Republic and which the Faculty of Medicine, UPJŠ will put into operation from the beginning of the new academic year 2021/2022. It will be used in the teaching of several subjects within all study years in various study programmes at the FM UPJŠ, while it will greatly modernize and improve the quality of teaching.
    The Rector of Charles University, prof. MUDr. Tomáš Zima, DrSc., MBA, noted that students will certainly appreciate the use of the most modern simulator and virtual technology, as teaching with the help of "hi-tech" will be extremely attractive.
