Young Doctors Summer School - Debate Chamber

Young Doctors Summer School

Portrait of a friendly female doctor isolated on whiteThe 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 2019 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 10th – 11th August 2019.

A full schedule for this course can be seen here.

Part 2 will cover Neurology, Medical Ethics, Psychiatry and Paediatrics and will take place 27th – 28th July (and repeated 24th – 25th August) 2019.

A full schedule for this course can be seen 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.
