QE’s medics get to grips with latest technology

Date Posted: 27/11/2019 | Posted In: Latest news

Future Medicine students from QE have enjoyed a thrilling Discover Medicine Event at Sunderland University. QE’s Medicine Society supports students with their research into careers within the health sector whilst preparing them for the competitive application process for Medicine. The event explored the problem-based learning available at Sunderland University and provided students with the opportunity to sample working in living laboratories, including practising clinical skills on the mock ward.

First year student, Joe Halliwell, who is studying Biology, Chemistry and Maths at QE, comments: ‘The technology at the University is amazing; using digital imaging to explore anatomy was a great way of seeing how different systems interact. I have learnt a lot about the teaching styles used in Medicine and the visit has definitely helped me to consider what I want from a degree in Medicine’. Alice Atkinson, Medicine Society Co-ordinator, adds: ‘Staff at Sunderland University were fantastic in demonstrating how the practical elements of a degree in Medicine can be taught. It was interesting to see how the positive impact of technology is having on both undergraduates’ and patients’ experiences with an emphasis on effective communication’.
