15 teams from different cities of Russia competed for the title of the best in the field of medicine and related sciences. The tournament was held in the format of medical battles. Future doctors demonstrated their knowledge and public speaking skills using the “speaker-opponent-reviewer” model. The final medical battle took place on March 4 at Boiling Point – Novosibirsk. The winner was the team “Crazy Skull”, which was a team from two schools – Lyceum No. 12 and SUSC NSU.

Vasilina Dobryak, a team member, said that she started participating in tournaments in 9th grade, as she planned to enter Institute of Medicine and Psychology NSU. For two years in a row, she took second place as part of other teams.

— At the V tournament, the difference between first place and us was less than 0.16 points. This year I decided that I wouldn’t leave the tournament without winning and asked to join the “Crazy Skull” team.

During the tournament, the guys learn a lot of interesting scientific information, they have the opportunity to meet people from the team, make friends not only with them, but also with the university.

— It was very interesting to try to participate in such an event. And it so happened that the team from the Scientific Research Center of NSU needed people, so I decided it was worth a try. The tournament is interesting. Many teams, extremely interesting problems, the solution of which took more than one day. The announcement of the results was a separate range of sensations. The most memorable thing was the last day of the tournament, when in the final the whole auditorium gathered to watch our fight. And the brightest moment, of course, was the announcement of the final results,” Matvey Shastin, a member of the winning team, shared his emotions.

The final is a medical battle between the three strongest teams, where the order of choice of roles is determined by the result of the captains’ competition.

This year the theme of the captains’ competition was: “Names of cells of the human body and animals.” Thus, the captain of the team “I am a drum!”, who named the largest number of different cells, without repeating himself and without making more than two mistakes, was able to take the right to be the first to choose a role during the battle.

— In principle, the final battle differs from the qualifying battles during the tournament only in the highest level of preparation and the undisguised excitement of the participants. And the “speaker-opponent-reviewer” model most fully provides the opportunity to demonstrate the participants’ abilities: their oratory, the ability to present information in the most understandable and knowledge-intensive manner, the skill of searching for quality information, as well as conducting a productive discussion. This format literally demonstrates the real activity of a physician who always works in a team and continuously searches for information in order to subsequently advise and treat patients,” said Evgenia Holdina, head of the expert commission of the Medical Tournament.

The goal of the tournament is to unite talented schoolchildren, give food for thought and encouragement for further work in the field of medicine and healthcare. This format allows you to teach children to think, work in a team even with people they previously did not know, and listen to future colleagues.

Alina Shushakova, an 11th grade student at the National Scientific Research Center of NSU, said that of the tasks presented, the most difficult and interesting were those in which it was necessary to analyze clinical cases.

— It was fascinating to analyze the proposed data and justify my point of view. Even before ITS, I planned to enter the Institute of Medicine and Psychology of NSU, and the event helped me meet students of this department, communication with them gave me confidence in my choice,” explains Alina.

Carolina Seropyan, a student at the Novosibirsk State University Scientific and Research Center, shared her impressions:

— The most interesting tasks at any tournament are those that are directly related to the analysis of the provided data, diagnostics and reasoning about the prospects of various scientific fields. There were plenty of similar tasks at the Schoolchildren Medical Tournament. I am still deciding which university and which major I will enroll in. However, NSU is definitely one of my favorites.
