Challenges

Do you want to challenge yourself and test your skills? You want to combine theory and practice? You’ve come to the right place! By participating in the event, you’ll have the opportunity to solve several challenges both practical and theoretical. Let’s have a look!

Quizz Challenge

Scan the QR code of the pictures and dive into complex clinical cases! Answer the questions quickly and shine with your knowledge.

Hackathon Challenge

Come and brainstorm on a health issue in a playful way with another group. Present your thoughts, debate and defend your ideas. Will you be the next saviours of humanity?

Canon Imaging Analysis Challenge

Team up with another pair and tackle a clinical case to observe the organs involved in turn. Take measurements and recognize anatomical structures to win this intense challenge.

Suturing Challenge

Dress up as if you were going to the Operating Room, different organs to suture are waiting for you! Equip yourself with sewing equipment and close the gaps using various stitching techniques. You will be evaluated on technique and numbers of stitches.

Plastering Challenge

Your partner has had a terrible fall and needs to be plastered over his fracture! Don't panic, another group will help you in this endeavour to secure your colleague's upper limb.

Belgian Defence Challenge

Take on the role of a Military Medic and attend to several wounded people in a war zone. Bring them to the stretcher and make sure they will survive the crisis by applying a Military Protocol.

Clinical Case Challenge

You have finally opened your practice and are faced with a real patient who has come in with symptoms. Diagnose and treat the disease by asking the right questions and making the right connections.

Ophthalmology Challenge

Your passion for the human eye will be satisfied with this challenge! Solve a clinical case and use all the necessary equipment to make the right diagnosis.

Ergospirometry Challenge

Draw a clinical case, perform a real ergospirometry from start to finish with another group and make your diagnosis through your analysis of the results.

CPR Challenge

A patient in a serious condition arrives in an ambulance, the patient is being monitored and you must help transfer the patient to hospital as quickly as possible. Cooperate with two other groups to save the patient.

The Final Game

The TOP4 teams are going to participate in the Final Game. These four groups will be invited to take the stage at the ''Closing Ceremony'' and will answer theoretical quizzes as if they were on a TV show. The winning group will be declared the overall winner of MedCup and will receive the Golden Prize. The other three groups will receive other amazing Prizes.
