The Ambassador of Switzerland to Bulgaria will present the prize to the young physician Vanyo Vezirov.
“At this moment with this printer we are doing three things. Anatomical models that are used so the students can learn on them. Surgical models that print out the injury of the patient so the doctors can experiment and practice the following operation on it. We have an upcoming knee joint operation on the dog.” – said Vanyo Vezirov for “Trud”.
The young doctor has set a deadline for 36 months to start producing bone implants for people as well. “This requires much more resources and a few more licenses. I hope that slowly but surely we will succeed. So far we have received financing from the “European Institute of Innovation & Technology” however we still need more funding.” – the young doctor commented.
Awards will be given to six more medical students who graduated with excellent grades. They will be given 2800 leva each. These prizes will be given from the heritage of Dr. Andrei Georgiev. Diplomas will be given to 442 young doctors. The Bulgarian graduates are 237 and the foreigners – 205.

He chose to stay and develop in Bulgaria. He is partnering with the journalist Evelina Pavlova. Musical host of the event will be the “Tenor” trio.
