FOR STUDENTS AND FAMILIES
The human body wonder told by playing and drawing. The splendour of the Teatro Anatomico, one of the treasures of Bologna, open to families. Guided tours among historic buildings and the university life of the past. A bioethics court for secondary school students as jurors. It is the appointment with “Geniuses aboard” for future medical jobs.

 

SPECIAL EVENTS
Music and theatrical action to observe Medicine and its protagonists from less usual points of view. An attempt to contaminate discourse types by adapting translation styles, trying to make richness of the philosophical-medical thought emerge on stage.

 

GUEST COUNTRY – MEXICO
After China and Germany, the guest country of the 2018 Festival della Scienza Medica is Mexico. Mexico is a country with a great tradition in cardiovascular research, whose participation will allow to confirm the Festival’s interest in confrontation with medical cultures and operational models other than those of which we are protagonists and/or beneficiaries.

 

WARD VISITS
Some hospital beds and patients, the same disease but different diagnoses and therapies in different periods. A format between a conference and a theatrical play: the public follow the “consultant” – like in hospitals during morning “ward visits” – who asks questions to patients/actors reciting medical records of the time. The advances of medicine along the ward of history with old and new patients.

 

FOCUS
Four in-depth analyses of social and biomedical current events, four appointments about the same number of topics, three related to rules and regulations and a transversal one on the advances of medicine:  Innovation and technology; Oncology; Neurosciences; Internal Medicine. An attempt to better define the boundaries of the different subjects and, at the same time, plumb their complexity levels and possible interactions.

 

CONTAMINATIONS
We are living a new age, where the boundary of subjects is less clear. Innovation is asking medicine to face languages and research and teaching fields that draw the horizon of possible future developments: aesthetics and moral philosophy, information technology and computer science, and telecommunications as well as the languages of art and film and television fiction.

 

EVOLVING MEDICINE
Like any science, medicine is continuously and positively evolving and discoveries that were innovation yesterday, today are a platform on which future knowledge can be built. The scheduled conferences offer an overview on some recent developments of biochemical research – and other apparently distant subjects such as information technology and telecommunications –  drawing the next horizon of medicine and the future doctor-patient relationship.

EX CATHEDRA
Magisterial lectures following the footsteps of the great clinicians and academicians of the Alma Mater and the first modern school of medicine in the University history.

 

BY
A series of conferences promoted and organized by bodies, institutions, companies and industry organizations.
