Risks associated with injuries during practical training are typical for postgraduate internships in hospitals. Aesculap Akademie (AA) is an educational institution that educates professional medical staff. A project has been designed to raise risk prevention awareness related to injuries associated with students' internships in medical facilities (undergraduates).

The survey has identified areas for improvement (insufficient safety related to needles and lack of information on the risks associated with needlestick injuries). As a result, Aesculap Akademie has provided safety cannulae for teaching purposes, and it has started to organize specialized seminars for the 1st and 2nd year students of Medical College once per year .
