Teddy Bear Hospital
Teddy hospital is an IFMSA projects where students go out to schools to talk about your body and to alleviate children's cuddly toys. The purpose of Winnie the hospital is to make children feel safer with the medical staff and hospital visits while medical students can practice speaking with children. During a visit, which usually takes about 2 hours, we divide the group of children at the three stations. The three stations are:
- Plasters station, where we investigate and plåstrar of children sick teddy bears
- Anatomistationen, where we start from our anatomy doll and talk about body
- Rit- and lekstationen, where we draw and play, Please drawings and games with the body as a theme
In addition to this, we are also currently starting a "big teddy bear hospital" in Linköping, which are organized in several other cities. This means that we create a sjukhuslik environment in a room of the university and let the children come to us instead of we go out to them. The first big teddy bear hospital should be held in early December.

Medical- and nursing students provide information on care and health (LIVH)
LIVH is a project aimed at educating and informing newly arrived immigrants at SFI schools and undocumented on how care in Sweden is organized, what rights you have as a patient and how different factors can affect one's health. The reason why we focus on newly arrived immigrants are people who immigrated to Sweden in general feel worse physically and mentally than the rest of the population and it is our responsibility to people to take care of them.
The project has been started in Linköping and Norrköping and right now we're eight people involved. We would like more people who want to help participate in Livh project. Keep in mind that it is a good opportunity for you to try to communicate with people who do not have a good command of the Swedish language, which is a good training for future employment.
Clinical exchanges is directed mainly towards students in the clinical semesters (semester 7-11), who are curious to try implementing a clinical practice abroad. As Local Exchange Officer, we help with exchanges to and from Linköping.
