‘What I wish I knew at Undergrad’ Series

Session 1: Clinical Quiz (26/01/19)

The first session of our ‘What I wish I knew at Undergrad’ series, kindly hosted by our Clinical Representatives this year, was a massive success. Our clinical students initially covered taking a comprehensive history, followed by the steps involved in both cardiovascular and respiratory examinations, both of which are taught in fourth year as part of the Clinical Medical course. This was followed by an exciting Clinical Quiz, where our undergraduate students formed groups and went up against each other completing rapid-fire clinical medicine questions. This session was both informative and fun and gave preclinical students a taste of the types of content and skills required as part of the Clinical Medicine course.

Session 2: Life as a Clinical Medic (23/02/19)

The second session of the ‘What I wish I knew at Undergrad’ series involved a talk on ‘Life as a Clinical Medic’. Our lovely Clinical Representatives went through a typical day as a clinical medic, and spoke about placements, opportunities and facilities available for clinical students. They used an interactive quiz to clear up some misconceptions about the clinical course, followed by a lengthy Q&A session that addressed many of our preclinical students’ questions – touching topics such as accommodation, placements and tips and advice for those entering clinical school this year!
