ABIO Pavia

Hello Harvey students, If you think that serving those in need is a crucial part of medicine, you might as well be willing to devote some of your free time and become a volunteer! But where to go? You can actually have the opportunity to be a member of ABIO PAVIA and subsequently volunteer in the departments of Pediatrics and Neuropsychiatry. Some more information about ABIO Pavia and your potential role: ABIO Pavia is an Association, which its purpose is to study, promote and implement initiatives aimed at welcoming children who need hospitalization and their families. It aims to minimize the psycho-affective traumas related to the hospitalization of the children and works with volunteers who have followed training courses, and without a therapeutic task, fit discreetly and willingly among the health worker, the sick children and their parents/guardians. Requirements and difficulties: Being a volunteer demands both communication skills and commitment and those qualifications are fundamental for ABIO Pavia. Thus, a basic-average level of Italian language is necessary, along with the time commitment of at least 3 hours per week in the hospital. However, you can find out more detail, if you join our first informing meeting on Wednesday 21st of November, which does not assume your further participation, however, in case you want to be volunteers, the attendance is mandatory. Last but not least, we have contacted the members of the association explaining our limited time and we were met with particularly welcoming will to be more lenient on the students regarding shifts in the hospital, as long as they are regular. We are attempting to accomplish a long-term collaboration with this association and we strongly believe that this will be a motive for international students to start learning the italian language; an important qualification for the clinical years. Furthermore, through experience, we will acquire the demanded compassion and flexibility for our future profession. A Day in Pediatric Ward Corso di formazione per i volontari ABIO

Mentorship Program

Hello dear Harveys and Harveysses! MedSoc is back on track for another year of mind-opening social and academic events that will bring us closer together and to our goals as medical students. We are proud to open this year, as is tradition, with the launching of the Harvey mentorship program! Do you remember what it was like when you first got to Pavia? not knowing how to find an apartment, not knowing what bus line takes you to class or even how to get a ticket for it? Where the good libraries are, where to find study material and even where you can go out if you don't feel like going to Zamzam. The first year students are coming and we want to make them feel at home as quickly as possible - and that's why we need YOU! We are looking for volunteers to adopt the incoming first year Harvey students and help them during their first months of studies and integration in Pavia. How can you help? 1. Be available to help your mentee with questions in such fields as: the university and its organization, study material, 'where to go?’ in Pavia, Italian bureaucracy etc. 2. Welcome them into the Harvey family - show them around and introduce them to some of your classmates 3. Be their contact person in case of emergency (we’re talking real emergency here, not when they're out of 'stuff’…) How can you do it? 1. If you're interested, fill out the signup form (link at the end of this post) 2. We will contact the first year students and create a list of the ones asking for a mentor and assign the couples based on: a. Whether the mentee asks for a mentor from the same country (because we understand that some problems, especially bureaucratic, are country specific) b. Whether the mentee or the mentor prefers to be assigned to a partner of the same sex 3. As soon as we're done…
