News about the University of Debrecen Faculty of Health part 2


The dean presented another two topics during the press breakfast.

He talked about a book, titled “Az egészségturizmus fókuszai” and written by Dr. Erika Könyves, Dr. Anetta Müller and Dr. József Ködmön, that filled the gap in the field of health tourism. This book, published at the end of 2013, is very helpful to the students at the faculty of health tourism and it was necessary because Nyíregyháza has been accredited as a health resort.
The Faculty of Health started to work together with the professor and the workgroup of University of Louisville (Kentucky, USA) in 2013 in order to create a bilingual (English-Hungarian, Hungarian-English), explanatory dictionary of social work. This is the first publication in this field in Hungary which can be utilized by not only instructors and students, but by experts, as well. The last verification phase of the dictionary is ongoing and it will be published in the spring of 2014. The preparation of Spanish and German versions is in progress, but only the English dictionary will be printed, the others will be published in digital form.

The nursing specialisation will host the two-week long international professional and scientific Intensive Programme between March 30 and April 2. Guests, students and instructors from Austria, Turkey and Finland will participate in this event. 10 students and 2 instructors will stand for every faculty on the special course financed by the Erasmus-Socrates Programme of the Union. The topic will be “Demencia és életminőség időskorban” (“Dementia and quality of life in old age”).
Finally, the dean informed us that the faculty had successfully applied for the establishment of SOWOSEC-network in the framework of CEEPUS (Central European Exchange Program for University Studies). The network supports the mobility of instructors and students of the international mutual master specialisation in Social Work and Social Economy. The partners are Austria, Poland, Slovakia and Romania. In the course of the program, there were Austrian and Romanian guest instructors at the Faculty of Health, Hungarian instructors taught in Austria, Poland and Romania and the Hungarian students spent their internship in Austria and Romania. This is the first successful CEEPUS Network at the Faculty of Health.
