"6 Days of the Country Doctor" - Panel Discussion
Students participating in the photo project "6 Days of the Country Doctor" held a panel discussion. TMA students Nino Gagua, Mariam Mamisashvili, Elene Gubeladze, Nanuka Katchiuri, Mariam Jorbenadze, and Irinka Isiani shared their experiences and impressions during the implementation of the project with their peers.

The main time of the conversation was devoted to the expedition of the students participating in the project to the villages of the mountainous Adjara, Skhalta, Khulo, and Ghorchomi. The girls introduced the audience to the varied life of doctors in the Adjara region and shared with their peers the profession of a doctor seen from their own perspective. Students lived with local country doctors for a week and observed the daily life and work process of country doctors and captured them with a photo camera. They also took notes. The trans-disciplinary project, which echoes the institutional culture and mission of the Tbilisi Medical Academy, aims, on the one hand, to raise awareness of doctors living in mountainous regions and on the other hand, to promote the motivation for employment of young doctors in villages.
