MjUNI is an opportunity for primary and secondary school pupils to try out a mock university for at least a few days a year. Over eight weekends, two hundred and fifty children experience the atmosphere of all ten faculties and other university departments, and there is even a matriculation ceremony and a graduation ceremony in June.

Following the example of last year, the fifth MJUNI teaching day was conceived in a medical-pharmaceutical way, with representatives of both faculties preparing a total of thirteen programmes for the participants, nine of which were held under the banner of the medical faculty. Thanks to the Department of Optics and Optometry, the youngest of the participants could penetrate into the secrets of the eye, while the representatives of the Institute of Pharmacology introduced them to how drugs are created.

The older ones could try to become a paramedic or, thanks to the nutrition therapy students, get to know a number of interesting facts from the world of healthy nutrition in a playful way. The very oldest ones were able to explore the fascinating world of anatomy through a tour of the Anatomical Museum or try their hand at working with stem cells in the laboratory together with the team of the Dáša Bohačiaková Research Group from the Institute of Histology and Embryology.

Special thanks also go to our student associations. Representatives of the Together Safe project, students from IFMSA and foreign students from MIMSA contributed to the program by preparing an English-language Fun Anatomy program for the 12-14 age group. "I was surprised at how linguistically equipped and communicative they were at that age. I was definitely not at that level with English at the age of 12," MIMSA member Tobias, who is in his third year of the General Medicine programme at the medical school, praised the participants.
