The AIMS Meeting Clinical Competition is a challenging opportunity for participants to put their knowledge to the test. The aim of this competition is to recognize and reward clinical excellence by testing the participants’ clinical reasoning, practical approach and ability to think of differential diagnosis and to work in a team.

10th AIMS Meeting’s Clinical Competition Winner
Miguel Antunes (FMUL)

“During my internship at Val d’Hebron medical centre’s unit of Pediatric Neurology in Barcelona, I was lucky enough to meet a fantastically dynamic and welcoming team. The unit is used to deal with widely multidisciplinary medical conditions, that require not only the integration of several areas of medica scientific knowledge, ranging from human genetics and biochemistry, to imagiology and pharmacology while also providing a strong emotional and social support to the patients and the families involved. Caring, compassion and scientific proficiency were the core values that defined my tutor, Dra. Mireia del Toro, and the remainder of the individuals that I was blessed to contact with and learn from.

I would like to leave my thanks to Dra. del Toro and the remaining team for the friendship and guidance, and to AIMS Meeting, Biomarin and Val d’Hebron Medical Centre for the opportunity.

Gràcies per tot!”
