Medicine 1 (Cardiology, Haematology, Dealing with Patients)

This two-day course will cover one of the most important skills for any medical professional – communicating effectively with patients. Participants will learn how to take an effective medical history, how to assess the severity of symptoms using standard scales, and how to discuss difficult or sensitive issues with patients.

On the anatomy side, we will look in particular at cardiac conditions, from mild arrhythmia to massive heart attacks. Students will discover how to assess heart health, how to diagnose particular disorders, and what treatment options are available when a problem is found. 

We will also discuss the social and ethical side of these topics, looking at why there are significant gender inequalities when it comes to diagnosis, treatment and survival rates for heart attacks. The group will discuss ways in which this situation could be addressed.

This is an online seminar group event, where students will be actively involved at every stage with practical exercises, discussions and presentations. 

This style of learning is an excellent preparation for further study, and should give participants a real taste of what it is like to be a medical student, enabling students to make a more informed choice about future study or career options.
