Dear Bulgarian and international medical students and young doctors,
It is a great pleasure for me to cordially invite you to participate inthe XIII International Medical Scientific Conference for Students and Young Doctors held at the high-technology Telecommunication Endoscopic Center of Medical University – Pleven, Bulgaria.
Traditionally, every year in October the student community organizes this international youth forum in order to attract medical students and young doctors from Bulgaria, the European countries and the whole world. The goal of our students is to demonstrate and defend the advanced image of our educational institution with an emphasis on implementing new technologies in education and clinical practice.
The Endoscopic training center for telemedicine, which is unique for the whole Eastern Europe, has become the emblem of our Medical University with its experimental operating room and two training simulators attracting growing numbers of Bulgarian and international students. We are famous for being the first in Bulgaria to introduce robot-assisted surgery in clinical practice working at present with two robotic systems and four operating teams in robotic surgery in Gynecology, Urology and General Surgery.
This year’s conference motto is One Way Ticket to Innovation, which perfectly corresponds with the advanced image of our University suggesting that the only possible way for future development of medicine is by implementing innovations in clinical practice and training.
The conference participants will have the privilege to attend A State of the Art lecture on robotic surgery delivered by Prof. Robert W Holloway, one of the world-renown pioneers in this field, who is a co-medical director of Florida Hospital Gynecologic Oncology and a founding member of Florida Hospital’s Global Robotic Institute.
Two invited Keynote speakers will enrich the galaxy of innovations with lectures on the most recent advantages in their fields: Prof. Muhammad Shamim Khan, MD, OBE, Consultant Surgeon & Rader in Urology at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust and King’s College School of Medicine, London, UK and Prof. Viliyan Platikanov, MD, PhD, Head of Anesthesiology, Emergency, Intensive and Maritime Medicine Department, Medical University of Varna, Bulgaria.
Have a One Way Ticket to Innovation at the 13th International Medical Conference for Students and Young Doctors!

Dear colleagues and friends,
Welcome to the 13th International Medical Scientific Conference for Students and Young Doctors Pleven!
During the European year of development we would like to show how much we have grown, how much we have learned and from what a long way we've come from in the last thirteen years.Thirteen years full of brave actions, persistence, striving towards the good of our profession and of course, wisdom, accumulated after every decision. We would like again to establish The International Scientific Medical Conference for Students and Young Doctors as a forum with traditions, offering the young doctors and researchers a path for their first steps in science. This time again, we will try to prove that the young spirit and the innovations in medicine are the driving force for our development. Science science does not tolerategoing back in time and that is why you should grab your one way ticket to innovations!
We continue to ignite the spark of progress and we are giving it to you - our teachers, colleagues and friends!
We are expecting you!
