  • Organised by Students Committee

The Students Section will be hosting this national meeting as part of the new nationwide study day series programme.

Medical finals looming? Bored of memorising and rote learning? It’s ok, we understand the enormity of your stress levels.

Join us for a study weekend and polish your medical knowledge in time for your exams.We have created a programme that follows a case-based discussion to get your brain ticking.

Medical finals want you to start thinking like a doctor because you will be one very soon. The aim of this study weekend is to look at common presentations you will come across (both in exams and in practice) and to start thinking about differentials, investigations and management.  

This event aims to help students prepare for their exams by covering subject matter in surgery and medicine that are common and important for their examinations (particularly the written portion) and in clinical practise. These are delivered in the form of presentations that are both comprehensive yet applicable by eminent professionals in this field.
