Graduation Year: 2018
Field: Specialization of Dentistry
I currently work on my doctoral studies at Palacký University in Olomouc, recently I have been proceeding my doctoral internship at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada for the second year. I mainly work here in research focused on the properties of dental ceramics.
How did your career develop after graduating from FM HK?
Only two years have passed since I graduated, so it is not really possible to talk about a real career, in fact. FM HK let me take the opportunity of three internships abroad during my studies, I am very grateful to our Faculty for that. In 2015, I was on a preclinical internship at the University of Lublin in Poland. In the summer of 2016, I had a great opportunity to be a research trainee during my three-month-long inernship as at the Mayo Clinic, one of the best hospitals in the world. And in summer 2017, I traveled for a clinical internship to Taiwan, which was supported by the Faculty, too. These internships abroad and the experience I gained there opened new horizons for me, and I knew that after graduating in Dentistry, I wanted to continue my education, gain new experience and one day, maybe, pass it on. And I owe our Alma Mater for all that!
What comes up in your mind when you say the Faculty of Medicine in Hradec Králové?
I recall the lovely five study years spent in the most beautiful city in the world that I know. Of course, there were a few sleepless nights before the dreaded exams in Preclinical Dentistry, Prosthetics, before credit exams in Endodontics and other subjects. Probably every dentist at the FM HK has experienced this, but after receiving the diploma all that gets forgotten and good memories only are to be enjoyed. As a coffee-lover, I also have to praise the coffee machines at EC and in the old building in Šimkovy sady, where my classmates and I kept regularly spending our monthly pocket money between the lectures.
What experience associated with studying at the faculty do you remember the most?
I probably remember Professors Bartáková and Procházková the most. They are experts at the right place, very passionate for their fields, so it cannot ever happen to you that you would be bored at their lectures or practical classes. Great traditional events of the FM HK, such as the halving of dentists and medics, which we all like to remember, certainly cannot be overlooked.
What do you consider to be the greatest success in your career so far?
An ongoing doctoral internship at the University of Alberta.
What hobbies are you into in your free time?
Since I have been living in Edmonton for the second year in a row now, where winter lasts up to eight months, I skate a lot, ski and I also try out snowshoes. My biggest passion is making clothes and baking though.
