Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.
The random article for Friday, 24 May 2019 is Academic league.
In Brazil, the academic leagues are associations of students of different years of medical graduation who seek to deepen their knowledge, orienting themselves according to the principles of the “university tripod”: teaching, research and extension. In general, the leagues are arranged into different areas, like neurology, trauma, oncology, pediatrics and cardiology. The academic leagues have similarities to the learning communities found in American and Canadian universities. However, the academic leagues are small groups, with the students responsible for the organizing and planning processes, with the assistance of a teacher. The activities occur regularly throughout the curricular semester, usually in unusual schedules, involving students from different years and even from different medical universities. The academic leagues are frequently discussed in seminars and conferences, such as Brazilian Congress of Medical Education, which promote scientific development and enable the exchange of experience between peers. Although, there is no clear concept about them.
