Training New Trainers (TNT)
Through this workshop, participants will develop their soft skills using peer education methods. Soft skills, like time & crisis management, intercultural learning and leadership, are useful tools for every medical student and future healthcare professional. By the end of this workshop the trainees will not only have improved their own soft skills, gained knowledge and exchanged ideas, but they will also be able to train other medical students, in similar workshops.
Training New Human Rights Trainers (TNHRT)
TNHRT is a workshop which is focused on human rights and peace issues. During this workshop, participants are trained in order to become Human Rights Trainers. They gain knowledge on human rights, including their link to health, and explore the role of medical students as advocates for human rights. Meanwhile, participants are educated in soft skills that will give them the ability to become trainers and educate other students accordingly in the future.

PHLT is a workshop which aims to provide participants with a wide range of competences needed to boost Public Health in their home country.
