Expired International Medical Summer School, University of Manchester, 15 - 19 Aug 2011

International Medical Summer School
Dates: 15th August (Monday) to 19th August (Friday), 2011
Venue: University Place, University of Manchester

Recent changes in the training structure for junior doctors coupled with a reduction in the duration of training have necessitated doctors to choose their ‘lifetime’ careers within 1-2 years of leaving medical school. To decide on a speciality at such an early stage can clearly be an arduous task since exposure to the competitive surgical and medical specialities during medical school is limited. This has resulted in junior doctors (foundation years) reaching the ‘cross roads’ of choosing a career without a clear understanding of the merits and demerits, pressures and challenges, and long-term
prospects and future of different specialities.

This week-long event is aimed at helping medi-cal undergraduates develop a strong clinical, academic and research portfolio that will help them to pursue a career in a competitive surgical or medical speciality on completion of medical
school. It will also help students obtain essential knowledge about their chosen speciality and develop the confidence to interact with consultants whilst undertaking clinical placements. Last year, the event was officially supported by Manchester University Medical School, Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, North West Postgraduate Deanery, UG department of Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, Medical Protection Society and Manchester Medics Surgical Society and their support is anticipated this year as well.

Closing date for registrations: 5th August 2011
