Circle of Demonstrators (DDK)

What is the demonstration activity?


Within the frames of a demonstration program students of the graduate training participate directly in the education work of our university hospitals, institutes and departments.

Demonstration through revision and reinforcement helps to internalize individual studies, and also aids instructors to design, perform and assess classes. It serves as inspiration for students who receive subject-related information from their peers of similar attitude and mindset not only from the lecturers belonging to older generations. Similarly to the work of the Student Researchers’ Society (in Hungarian TDK), demonstration enables deep insight into a field of science, at the same time into the work of the instructors, and may promote acquisition of didactic thinking.

The demonstration activity does not exclude TDK activity; the opposite is true; they complement one another. Our excellent demonstrator students may share their experiences at the workshop of our Faculty’s Instructors. Educational assistant activity performed with growing self-determination and under control makes a suitable ground for acquiring and improving communication skills necessary for post-graduate training and possible future higher education theoretical or clinical instructor careers.

A few departments of our Faculty have a long tradition of involving students in education. A significant number of our colleagues in theoretical training and also clinic directors were active in demonstration programs during their university years.
