For teachers

Sir or Madam,

I would  like to present you the Organ and Blood Donation section of BMSA, whose enthusiastic members -very much like other groups of our Association- give prevention classes to high school students.

We have three major topics (45 minutes each )

  • Blood donation: we would like to highlight the importance of voluntary blood donation, how many lives can saved by it. We also include information about the trending topic of plasma donation, and we cover knowledge about blood, that is required in biology final exams.
  • Stem cell transplantation: we talk about voluntary donation, the process and what diseases can be cured this way. We illustrate the European and Hungarian development and current state of bone marrow transplantation with pictures, charts and figures.
  • Organ transplantation: this topic includes legal backgrounds, brain death, and which organs can be transplanted, with some extra information about the given organ. This topic gives us the opportunity to talk about each organ, and so to help students prepare for their final exams.

These subjects are not part of basic education, therefore we hope we provide students with new knowledge.
In general we try to emphasize the following points:

  • Information useful for final exams (blood types, Rh disease)
  • Interesting facts
  • Topics that concern high school students, like blood and plasma donation.

If you are here to ask us to give a lesson on this topic, please send us an e-mail to orafelkeres.boe@gmail.com. We will then contact you.
Should you be interested, or have any questions, requests, do not hesitate to contact us at: transzplantkoord.boe@gmail.com.

Thank you for your help!

For our students

Dear (future) members of BMSA,

Despite sounding like an actual institution from the first two years of your study, do not be intimidated by our section. If you are interested in internal medicine, haematology, paediatrics or surgery, you will find a fitting topic:

  • All about blood (voluntary blood donation, transfusion, but you can even include leukemia)
  • Stem cell transplantation, its state and development in Europe and Hungary
  • Organ transplantation (legal backgorunds, brain death, which organs are transplantable)

But what’s going on all year?

After training and taking an exam, or attending a mentor’s classes you will of course be qualified to teach about these topics in high schools- and since this is not part of their curriculum, you will give them brand new information. Not to mention how you this is the perfect opportunity to improve your presentation skills, which will come in handy later (Scientific Students’ Associations/TDK, thesis, etc).

Just like other sections, we are also part of Egészségverseny (Semmelweis Health Competition).
During semesters, we help organising blood donations, here you can help us greatly.
We also provide further training opportunities for you by organising presentations. 

If you would like to participate, or have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us at transzplantkoord.boe@gmail.com or Facebook.
