Hello all, As a graduate of the Joint Master’s Programme in Health Informatics 2014, me and my dear colleague Dina Titkova made a short film giving you insights about the Health Informatics programme at KI from the current students and graduates. So, without further ado, here’s the link to the video:
Although the conference was loaded with intensive meetings, lectures and group work, some time was saved for social and fun activities. Day 4 started with a short, yet very informative lecture about some of the projects and studies that the Graduate Institute of Biomedical Informatics, Taipei Medical University was/is involved in.

I heard a lot about typhoons before going to Taiwan, but I never imagined being in the middle of one before!

Many of us are supposed to be working on their thesis which are to be defended and presented some time in May this year, but are we actually doing that? Let me first define what a procrastinator is for those who have no clue what the word means (but soon might identify themselves as procrastinators).

I can’t count the amount of times when I told people that I l’m living and studying in Sweden and they start saying: Oh, they make the world’s finest chocolate, please bring us some! Great watches, eh? Which part? The French or German speaking? It’s really funny because I use both English and Arabic to… Read More Sweden vs Switzerland
