Medicine Summer Schools – Tutors Wanted

Posted on by

Debate Chamber is a small education company running non-exam oriented academic Summer Schools for students aged 15-18.

The subjects we cover include Philosophy, Politics, Economics, International Relations, History, Classical Civilisations, History of Art, English Literature, Law, Mathematics, Physics, Medicine and Dentistry. You can take a look at our courses here – http://www.debatechamber.com/summerschools/

We’re a little different to other tutoring or admissions companies, in that we don’t coach students to pass their school exams, or finesse their interview technique. Instead, our events focus on building on students’ intellectual curiosity and desire to explore academic material in a more sophisticated way than is often available to them at school. We encourage students to explore material more independently, pursuing their own interests and questions, rather than trying to second guess the desires of an examiner, interviewer or teacher.

We are looking for fourth and fifth year medics with excellent subject knowledge and strong communication skills to teach some introductory medicine topics to classes of bright and motivated secondary age students. The courses will take place at weekends in July and August and are held at University of London venues.

The rate of pay is £145 per day. We require Tutors to hold or apply for a DBS check (we can help you to do this).

If this sounds like something that would interest you, then please send your cv and cover letter to Jessica Harvey-Smith at jhs@debatechamber.com.  We will be holding interviews over the next few weeks.

Regional IME Student Ethics Conference

Posted on by

Leicester’s Medical Ethics Student Society (MESS) is pleased to invite you to the Regional IME Student Ethics Conference, to take place in our new Centre for Medicine on Saturday 11th June.

The theme this year is ‘Politics in Medicine’,  a topic that we are sure will encourage vigorous debate, given the current climate.

We hope to offer a varied and involving day; including debates, student-led poster and oral presentations, a plenary lecture from Professor Jose Miola on ‘Lord Sacchi’s Medical Innovation Bill’ , and a choice of workshops which will allow delegates to debate the issues directly.

It will be a fantastic opportunity to learn about, discuss and question the current political and ethical issues facing healthcare today, and meet like-minded medical students!

The event costs £10 to attend.

BEGINNINGS, BARRIERS AND BRIDGES

Posted on by

The Refugee Health Conference, Saturday 23rd of April, Green Templeton College, Oxford

The flight of refugees from Syria and North Africa has been called the greatest humanitarian crisis of our time, and it shows no signs of slowing down; UNHCR has just appealed for another half million to be resettled over the next few months in Europe. Rather than just watching helplessly as it unfolds, we offer you an opportunity to educate and involve yourself with the challenges ahead as this vulnerable population arrives to our shores. What particular health care needs do they have? What barriers to health care access do they face? How are the children affected in the long term? What can I do now, practically, as a medical student?

Saturday 23rd of April, 9.30am-5.30pm
Green Templeton College
Oxford

Lunch is included!

Book your (free) tickets on www.oxrefugeehealth.org, or find out more on https://www.facebook.com/events/1705619736380975/
