On Wednesday this week trainee doctors from the Peninsula Medical School visited Nexus to deliver a workshop for our Future Medics. Students in Years 9 and 10 were taught about how our airways work and how asthma can be a significant factor in respiratory distress.
The students were taught using a common teaching technique in medical school known as ‘Problem Based Learning’. In these sessions the medical students are given a patient presenting with a set of symptoms and by asking questions and carrying out research the trainee doctors have to find the answers themselves to the challenges posed.
The students gained a valuable insight into how medical school works and for our hopeful medics this was an amazing experience.
We would like to extend our sincere thanks to the trainee doctors who gave up their time to deliver this brilliant workshop.
