Introduction to Clinical Medicine

Posted on

Dear Students,

Clinical medicine can be a daunting prospect for new medical students, with several examinations to learn and apply prior to their end of year examinations. Coming straight from the classroom to the ward can be challenging. Often it can be difficult to adjust to this new way of learning and picking up information.

We are offering a course to bridge classroom and ward based teaching with a structured full day teaching programme targeted towards new clinical students across London.

The only SJT course you need to help sky-rocket your FPAS score! The SJT exam is the final opportunity to drive your points up and we believe our course will do exactly that! We’re two foundation year 1 doctors who sat the SJT exam just last year and went to pretty much every course running – and feeling very out of pocket!

We both got our first choice deaneries including North West Thames and South Thames deaneries and jobs; Chelsea and Westminster Hospital and Epsom General Hospital. Having accomplished an SJT score in the top 3% of the country and studying the exam in depth, we believe that we can provide you with the best information running to get the top marks.

I am writing to invite you to the lecture: How the Fruitfly transformed Biomedical Science, by Professor Philip W Ingham, Vice Dean for Research and Toh Kian Chui Distinguished Professor at the Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine in Singapore on Wednesday 5th November at 5.30pm.

Professor Ingham has been at the forefront of genetic and developmental biology research over the last three decades.

In 2007 he was elected an Honorary Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and, in 2014, was awarded the Waddington Medal by the British Society for Development Biology for outstanding research performance as well as services to the subject community.
