Young Doctors Summer School
The Young Doctors Summer School offers an introduction to the world of medicine for younger students. Each part of the Summer School is structured so that more academic sessions are interspersed with fun and enjoyable activities which are designed to test and apply the theoretical knowledge gained. Students will take part in practical activities, like learning how to suture a wound and in role play and case study scenarios, where they take the role of practitioners and consultants – diagnosing and recommending treatment options. There will also be experiments, group work and quizzes on each day.
For 2017 the Summer School will be split into two parts –
Part 1 will cover Dealing with Patients, Haematology, Radiology, Cardiology and Suturing and will take place 29th – 30th July (and repeated 12th – 13th August) 2017.
You can see a schedule for Part 1 here.
Part 2 will cover Neurology, Medical Ethics, Psychiatry and Paediatrics and will take place 5th – 6th August (and repeated 26th – 27th August) 2017.
You can see a schedule for Part 2 here.
Please note that students can attend either one or both parts of the Summer School, and that there is no requirement to have attended Part 1 in order to attend Part 2. The courses complement one another, but may also be treated as independent events.
