Participating in the competition is an opportunity to acquire and learn more about physiology as well as improve English skills. This is also a great chance for students to meet, confidently communicate and further strengthen good relationships with international friends.

Hopefully in 2022 the pandemic will pass and students of Faculty of Odonto-Stomatology can directly participate in the contest in Malaysia. From there, they will have the opportunity to interact with other teams and people in that country and to widen their horizon as well as improve the ability to adapt to new environments.
