BeMSA Leuven

BeMSA Leuven

Teddy bear hospital

Teddy Bear Hospital is a project for children between 4 and 7 years, giving them the chance to be a doctor for a day. Under supervision by medical students, they can take care of their sick teddy bear. Doing so, they get to know different aspects of the hospital and we hope to take away their fear of doctors.

In the meantime, adapted lectures are provided for the parents that fit in with the theme.

Origin and History

BeMSA Leuven first saw the light in 2009 as a workgroup within Medica, the student body for medical and biomedical students at the Catholic University of Leuven. In the coming year these students started the national structure.. Since 2017 we don’t have one workgroup responsible, but a committee consisting of 12 students. BeMSA Leuven stays closely joint with Medica.
