Confabula student paper
Confabula is the student newspaper of the University of Pécs Medical School. Approximately they create 1.600 peaces, at three or four times in one semester. The authors are amateur medical students who work hard to write and edit a selective newspaper. Few years ago several teachers felt motivation to write their own articles about a special and unique topic. It is so inspiring for the students, clearly because they also would like to became a doctor one day.
The goal of the paper is giving more interesting and special articles for the medical student and also for others. They do not try define professionally the whole story because they want to reach laymen too. Confabula publish also in english because there is a huge interest from the foreign students.
Next to the scientific articles Confabula takes care about the student life. They write every year about the Fresmen's Ball, about the students' evenings and also the sport programmes. The authors try to present the city events and make interviews with famous person like Jane Goodall, primatologist, Károly Kalmár-Nagy dr., Doctor of 2010 and for example Hungarian comedians.
