1 Welcome to the Lisbon Faculty of Medicine! We take pride in our tradition of excellence in IFMSA’s professional exchange program, and we look forward to working with you. Whether you are a pre-clinical medical student just beginning your clerkships, or already a clinical student

exchange program offers a unique educational and cultural experience in addition to the regular medical curriculum. It aims at broadening foreign students’ understanding of the medical and social conditions in Portugal, as well as providing you with an invaluable opportunity to live the true ‘Lisbon experience’. As an incoming student to our faculty, you are more than welcome to take part in any of the many activities held by the local student committee, and you will find a detailed list further on in this booklet. In particular, we strongly encourage you to take part in the Lisbon leg of the social program, seen as a city is always best seen through its inhabitants’ perspective. Most importantly, though, we want you to become an active member of the hospital department you have been assigned to during your stay with us. A hands-on approach will prove very useful, as will showing interest and asking questions. We consider it your responsibility to make the most out of the opportunity you’re being given. You will not be left alone, though. We have assembled a highly enthusiastic team of voluntary local students to guide you through every aspect of your exchange. Feel free to reach them, should you need any help on a given matter, but keep in mind that they’re students just as you, not professionals. We hope this booklet is useful to you, and wish you enjoy Lisbon! The International Affairs Department for the Student Committee of the Lisbon Faculty of Medicine.

While doctors have a good command of English, patients do not. You should therefore make an effort to learn basic Portuguese beforehand.

Dress Code During hospital hours you are expected to wear a white coat, stethoscope (according to department), and visible identification (bring your medical student card). Footwear should be discrete – no flip flops.

Duration and Working Hours Clerkship duration usually complies with the calendar month, which you should take into account when buying plane tickets. In order to be eligible to the coveted IFMSA SCOPE certificate you must comply with a minimum 20 working hours per week. This will be monitored by means of a logbook your tutor signs at the end of every day. You are free to manage your time, but keep your tutor informed.

Attitude Your tutor will only pay you attention if you show him/her interest, commitment and assiduity. You will not be obliged to do specific tasks, thus it is your duty to search for work and decide how much you want to learn. Self-sufficiency and curiosity are highly encouraged.

Introduction

Education Here students can take three courses: Microbiology, Nutrition and Medicine. The latter is divided into three stages, in a total length of 6 years. The Basic Stage (years 1 and 2) provides a common unified basic science learning experience, focusing mainly on health strategies, research and the community. The Pre-clinical Stage (year 3) develops integrated basic science/clinical knowledge, and the Clinical Stage (years 4, 5 and 6) enables medical students to reach the standard of competence required in a real-life clinical situation.

Research The Egas Moniz Building is the modern research unit of FML, and home to the prestigious Institute of Molecular Medicine. Working in close relationship with the Gulbenkian Science Institute makes it one of the foremost research groups in Portugal. In 2005 alone it published over 90 articles and 10 chapters in well renowned scientific magazines, made 129 communications in international conferences and won 21 prizes. Medical students are warmly welcome to take part in its research projects. Each year, roughly 25 students successfully accomplish oneyear research projects in 10 different departments, with a total approximate budget of 300.000 euros.

Introduction

The Lisbon Faculty of Medicine (FML) ranks as one of the most prestigious medical schools in Portugal. Founded in the XIX century, it has had numerous headquarters throughout the years. Nowadays, it is made up of two units: the main building, which works as a public hospital (1954); and a brand new, state of the art, research-oriented complex (2004). At the helm of the faculty you will find eminent neurosurgeon Dr Egas Moniz (1874-1955), standing proudly as the first Portuguese citizen ever to receive the Nobel Prize. You may know him as the developer of cerebral angiography, the technique that allowed physicians to map blood vessels in and around the brain, or as the first known describer of the carotid siphon.

Student Committee The Student Committee of the Lisbon Faculty of Medicine (AEFML) was founded in September 1914, being one the first student organizations of the country. It is a non profit organization primarily aimed at protecting the interests and rights of the students it represents. In addition to that, it also seeks to provide them with first-rate opportunities to broaden their horizons beyond the standard medical curriculum. Its staple activities range from sign language courses, disease tracking campaigns and the ‘teddy bear hospital’, to sports tournaments, medical students’ gatherings and both national and international exchange programs.

Lisboners are keen on participating in pioneering exchange projects: the twinning exchange program, the Kumba village project, and the IFMSA professional/research exchange programs, just to name a few. The Socrates-Erasmus program is also quite popular, with FML alone sending and receiving around 40 students on a yearly basis. In addition to these exchange programs, a few foreign students choose FML to take their complete degree. The majority hails from Portuguese speaking countries (Cape Verde, Angola, Mozambique, Guinea Bissau and Brazil) as well as eastern European countries, namely Bulgaria and Russia. Only rarely do we have students from Germany, USA and China. It is also AEFML’s duty to integrate these students in the FML life.

History Portugal is one of the oldest nations in Europe, with eight centuries of History and a happy mixture of peoples, cultures and traditions. Before 1143, the year in which D. Afonso Henriques in Guimarães declared independence from the kingdoms of León and Castile and became the first King of Portugal, peoples such as the Phoenicians, Greeks, Carthaginian, Romans, Huns, Suevi, Alans, Vandals and Moors had already passed through the land. During the 12th and 13th Centuries, the Portuguese Kings extended the borders and conquered the Kingdom of the Algarves from a powerful Arab emir. With its borders now defined, Portugal started to look inside itself. At the end of the 13th Century, King D. Dinis founded the University of Coimbra, one of the oldest in Europe, and castles, palaces and cathedrals were built in

A resulting period of confusion resulted, out of which emerged António Oliveira Salazar, a controversial dictator, loved and hated, who governed the country with an iron fist for almost half a century. However, on April 25th 1974 the “Carnation Revolution” returned freedom to the Portuguese and ended what still remained of the former colonial empire. Once again inside its own b orders, Portugal turned round and faced Europe. In 1986 the country joined the EEC and, in the last twenty years, the Portuguese have been enthusiastic participants in the construction of a new Europe. Without however forgetting their History, their character and their traditions.

History

Such power and wealth awoke the jealousy of other peoples, and after the tragic death in battle of King D. Sebastião in North Africa, the vacant throne was taken by Spanish Kings, who united the two states for 60 years. In 1640 however, we once again restored the independence of Portugal. In the 18th Century D. João V, an absolutist King and lover of the arts, ordered the construction in Mafra of a giant convent and palace and, in Lisboa, the Aqueducto das Águas Livres. However, the luxurious and exotic capital of the kingdom almost completely vanished in 1755 due to a devastating earthquake. It was Marquês de Pombal, Prime Minster for King D. José, who recreated a new Lisboa, monumental and ready to take on the furies of nature. In the 19th Century, Napoleon's troops invaded Portugal and the royal family fled to Brazil, returning 13 years later to a different country, weakened by years of war and where Republican ideas were increasingly gaining ground. The Republic was in fact finally established in 1910.

PORTUGAL

the most important cities. But the kingdom was too small for the size of the ambition of the Portuguese monarchs, who could not resist the call of the sea. Thus started one of the greatest adventures of humanity, the Discoveries, led by the visionary Infante D. Henrique. During the 14th, 15th and 16th Centuries, the Portuguese caravelas navigated as far as Africa, to the distant Orient and the heart of the South American continent. They conquered lands, hoarded riches and brought to Europe things which had never been seen before. The small kingdom was now the largest Empire in the world. Portugal brought together wise men and mercenaries, scientists and painters, businessmen and poets, slaves and princes.

Culture Music

Literature 16th Century adventurer Luís de Camões (1524-1580) wrote the epic poem “The Lusiads”, a fantastical interpretation of the Portuguese voyages of discovery, with Virgil's “Aeneid” as his main influence. Modern Portuguese literature is represented by authors such as Eça de Queirós, Sophia de Mello Breyner Andresen, António Lobo Antunes and José Saramago, winner of the 1998 Nobel Prize. It is, however, Fernando Pessoa [3] (1888–1935) who is said to have been the four greatest Portuguese poets of modern times, since he had three alter egos (‘heteronyms’) who wrote in styles completely different from his own.

Architecture Modern Portuguese architects, of which Siza Vieira and Tomás Taveira are the most representative, follow the most advanced trends seen in European mainstream architecture with no constraints, though preserving some of its singular characteristics. The azulejo and the Portuguese pavement (“calçada”) are two typical elements of Portuguese-style architecture.

Culture

At age 99, Golden Palm and Golden Lion award winner Manoel de Oliveira is the world’s oldest active director, and remains one of the most influential filmmakers in Europe. Renowned portuguese actors include Maria de Medeiros (Pulp Fiction) and Joaquim de Almeida (Desperado, Behind Enemy Lines).

PORTUGAL

Portuguese music encompasses a wide variety of genres. The most renowned is fado, a melancholy urban music, usually associated with the Portuguese guitar and saudade, or longing. Internationally notable performers include former queen of fado Amália Rodrigues [1], World Music award winner Mariza [2], and Madredeus. The hip-hop scene is also quite popular, with Da Weasel, Boss AC and Sam the Kid holding sold out live acts. Other bands with international recognition include gothmetal band Moonspell, Blasted Mechanism and The Gift.

Cuisine Portuguese cuisine is characterised by rich, filling and full-flavoured dishes and is a prime example of a Mediterranean diet.

Bacalhau

This is one of the most typical dishes in Portugal, most typically consumed in the coldest regions of the country. It consists of a mixture of boiled meats (pork, beef, bacon, sausages, etc.) and vegetables (carrots, potatoes, beans, rice, etc.) altogether.

Pastry The Portuguese art of pastry has its origins in ancient recipes, of which Pastéis de Belém and Queijadas de Sintra [3] are good examples. Made for over centuries in the quaint village of Sintra, these small cheese and cinnamon cakes are simply divine. As for Pastéis de Belém [4], suffice it to say that their secret 1837 recipe has kept thousands coming for more.

Wines Portuguese wines have deserved widespread recognition since the times of the Roman Empire, which associated Portugal with god Bacchus. Today the country is known by wine lovers and its wines have won several international prizes. Some of the best Portuguese wines are: Vinho Verde, Vinho da Bairrada, Vinho do Porto, Vinho da Madeira and Moscatel. Port Wine [5] is well known around the world and the most widely exported Portuguese wine.

The Portuguese love dry codfish (bacalhau), for which there are hundreds of recipes. There are more than enough bacalhau dishes for each day of the year. It can be prepared in several ways, such as bacalhau com natas (with cream), bacalhau com todos (boiled with vegetables), and pastéis de bacalhau [1]. Two other popular fish recipes are caldeirada and grilled sardines, eaten mostly in the summer, when the weather allows outdoor barbecues.

Introduction History Lisboa (whose previous names include Olisipo Felicitas Julia and Archbouna) is the largest city and capital of the country, and is located on the terraced sides of a range of seven low hills overlooking the hectic harbor. Legend suggests that it was founded by Ulysses, though historians claim the city’s origins go back to 1200BC.

Lisboa offers visitors a wealth of cultural attractions, including the imposing 12th century cathedral, the Mosteiro dos Jerónimos with its strikingly beautiful interior and the National Museum of Ancient Art. The São Jorge Castle, built by the Visigoths in the 5th century, provides spectacular views over the city and the Tagus River from its terraces. Lisboa has a vibrant social life centred on Rossio Square and Bairro Alto (literally high district), which pulsates with activity far into the night. The Alfama is the city’s oldest and quaintest quarter, a maze of ancient streets and alleyways where nearly all the houses date back to the 16th century. At night, the Alfama is home to Fado, the melancholy music which epitomises Portugal’s rich folk heritage.

The ‘Great Lisbon’ The city’s actual population is set at around 550 000 inhabitants. However, in reality lots more work in Lisboa but comute to smaller towns all around it. Thus, total population of the so-called “Grande Lisboa” is actually 2.8 million.

Introduction

Tourism

LISBOA

Once the wealthiest city in the Western world, Lisboa remains a major cultural and commercial centre. Its airport is an important link between Europe and America, and the city has one of the biggest harbours in the world, spreading over more than 30km.

Sightseeing: Lisboa Baixa

This is where some of Lisboa's older hills, steeped in history, collided with the new cartography of Pombal's reconstructed city centre. Today, both areas are old, venerated, and full of shops, but Chiado's history and cultural institutions give its commercial activities a gilt edge. Here you’ll find quality shops, Convento do Carmo (reminder of the earthquake), Elevador de Santa Justa (neogothic lift to Carmo) and Brasileira, famous art-noveau café where Fernando Pessoa still lingers.

Bairro Alto Higher up is Bairro Alto (the "high district") a 16th century maze of narrow streets framed by the wider lanes and longer blocks of later construction. It is best known as the district of Lisboa with the highest concentration of bars, where parties spill out onto the streets, but it is also a residential area and home to Lisboa’s most extravagant shops.

Castelo de São Jorge [oposite page] Crowning the hill where the city’s original settlers lived, this medieval castle is the result of a successful and evocative restoration work.

Sé Catedral Built in the 12th century for the city's first bishop, it is a fortress-like structure whose stone glows amber at sunset.

LISBOA

From the early 16th to mid-18th centuries, Lisboa's royal palace stood on the riverbank, around today's Praça do Comércio. It was the grand entrance to Lisboa, one of the world's great cities. Then in 1755 the earth shook, the ocean rose and fires raged, and the Paço Real and most of the medieval jumble of buildings behind it were gone. The Baixa (downtown) we see was built on the ruins of lower Lisboa, to a different plan, in a different style, for a new era. This is the bustling centre of Lisboa, including the broad riverfront square Terreiro do Paço, the pedestrianized street Rua Augusta and its triumphal arch [page 24], and the cosmopolitan, coffee-fuelled heart, Rossio Square.

Padrão dos Descobrimentos [page 18] Created in 1960 for the 500th anniversary of the death of Henry, the Navigator, this monument is in the form of the prow of a ship and incorporates the heroes of the Discoveries. Behind Henry are the statues of great people of that era, including explorers, cartographers, artists, scientists and missionaries. The pavement compass and map (a gift from South Africa) trace their exploits.

For many, this perfectly proportioned defensive tower is the masterpiece of the Manueline style. When built in 1515, it was almost mid-stream in the Tejo; land on the right bank was later reclaimed.

Lisboa's greatest monument is emblematic of the country's Manueline style. Dom Manuel I built the monastery and abbey in the early 16th century, in thanks for Portugal's voyages of maritime discovery.

Sightseeing: Sintra Recognized in 1995 as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Sintra was the summer retreat of Portuguese kings from the 13th to the late 19th centuries. It still possesses many of the classic qualities of a hill station: a cooler climate than the city, ample greenery and an atmosphere conducive to indulging romantic whims. The quaint older town is home to some picturesque cafés, and the surrounding landscapes, dotted by exquisite mansions and sights, are an essential part of any visit.

Palácio da Pena [oposite page] UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE SITE Dom Fernando II, Dona Maria's German-born king consort, had this fabulous toyland palace built in the mid-18th century. The intriguing work of a hyperactive imagination, it exhibits all his eclectic and romantic tastes, and has been preserved as it was when the royal family last lived there.

The world's second largest aquarium has hundreds of aquatic species organized by habitat and viewed on two levels. The vast central tank has species large and small, swimming round and round in uneasy peace. Impossibly cuddly looking sea otters (Eusébio and Amália) in a side tank get the most affection.

Built on the site of Lisboa's successful Expo 98 world fair, held to mark the 500th anniversory of Vasco da Gama's epic voyage to India, the "Park of the Nations" is a new, self-contained riverside district east of the centre. It balances Belém to the west, and showcases Portuguese architecture of a younger vintage. A bustling amusement park and trade-fair centre by day, by night the park becomes a concert and events venue, with a young nightlife scene and a recently opened casino. Here you’ll find the Oceanary, the Atlantic Pavillion and Torre Vasco da Gama [1], Lisboa’s tallest building

Caro Tutor,

Este capítulo, «Logbook», tem como função registar a assiduidade do aluno assim como a sua participação/execução de tarefas. Estas «checklists» pretendem facilitar o processo de Qualificação Académica do Intercâmbio no país de origem do aluno e, simultaneamente, elevar a qualidade do Estágio Clínico. Estamos sempre disponíveis para qualquer esclarecimento. Com os melhores cumprimentos, O DEPARTAMENTO DE INTERCÂMBIOS DA ANEM PORMSIC 2010

Dear Student, It is your responsibility to fill in this logbook/checklist during your clerkship. We recommend that you keep this with you at all times and obtain signatures on a regular basis to ensure all your experiences are recorded. We are gathering information to improve co-operation between students and hospitals and to raise the academic quality of the programme. Your experience and comments are essential to this process. If you have any questions about this booklet, please contact your Local Exchange Officer. We welcome your co-operation and hope you find it beneficial. Enjoy your clerkship! Best regards, ANEM PORMSIC 2010

CLERKSHIP LOGBOOK

Agradecemos-lhe a participação no Programa de Intercâmbios da IFMSA/ANEM, orientando e recebendo este aluno para um Estágio Clínico.

CLERKSHIP LOGBOOK

Why Assess The main objective of the checklist is to implement a standard continuous formative assessment of international students' clinical skills in order to ensure the academic quality of the exchange. Assessment in clinical clerkships is essential for providing feedback to the student, and the clerkship as a teaching programme also benefits from more emphasis on the formative function of assessment. In this way, it stimulates improvement of the quality of clerkships from an educational perspective.

When and How Information should be carried through longitudinally. The checklist should be used by the student and the tutor as a guide in the daily practice. It is designed to give both student and tutor the possibility to see if the learning goals of the clerkship are achieved. For this, we have drawn from Miller's Pyramid of competence. The checklist also constitutes a document that states that the student has successfully fulfilled the clerkship in a way they might use it for accreditation at their home university. For this reason, it should be used in a responsible way. The attached logbook is an additional help for the student to monitor his learning progress. It is not supposed to be used as a grading tool. Blank spaces or unmarked items in the checklist, as well as in the logbook, could be interpreted as impossible to encounter or perform due to variations in medical practice and not necessarily as the lack of initiative to seize opportunities.
