Throughout the two-day fair, representatives from the Jessenius Faculty were on hand to answer a myriad of questions. Inquiries ranged from details about the admissions process, various study programs, to insights about life as a student in Martin. Questions regarding accommodation and leisure activities in the city were also addressed, providing a holistic view of student life.

In addition to the informational campaign, the faculty was involved in promoting science through the accompanying "Science for Life" event. Here, students were introduced to the integral role of scientific research in medicine. Attendees had the opportunity to engage in hands-on laboratory work, which included using pipettes and microscopes. A significant highlight was the scientific discussion focused on the detection of pathogens in wastewater. Moreover, visitors could examine microscopic preparations of various hematological diseases, enriching their understanding of this medical field.

The high turnout and positive feedback at the faculty's booth reflected the significant impact such events have on guiding the future paths of high school graduates. The enthusiasm and interest shown by attendees underscore the importance of these interactions in shaping the decisions of future university students.

Representing the Jessenius Faculty of Medicine at Gaudeamus 2023 were RNDr. Marek Samec, PhD., Rebeka Rovňaníková, and Iryna Zavhorodnia.
