Tab Content: Medicine Summer School 2021

It is hoped we will run a Medicine Summer School in spring 2021, however this will be confirmed in late 2020. Information can be found below for reference:

Our Medicine Summer School is a collaboration between Lancaster Medical School, University of Liverpool and Edge Hill University funded by the Medical Schools Council (MSC) and Health Education England (HEE).

The Summer School aims to provide you with a full insight into life studying mediicne, balancing skills development and experience of undergraduate level study with social and leisure activities giving you a chance to experience life with three different UK medical schools.

During the week, you will have the opportunity to try problem-based learning (PBL), a form of small group teaching used in many UK medical schools, alongside team and case-based learning. You will gain an understanding of the breadth of knowledge learned during a medical degree. You'll explore a medically-relevant scenario and research topics related to this scenario, with the opportunity to feedback to your peers what you have learned. You'll also participate in clinical skills and clinical anatomy teaching sessions to observe the variety of learning environments at three different medical schools.

What does a Summer School involve?

Our Summer Schools fully immerse you in University life. You will work in small subject groups with our University academics and PhD students on a project over the course of the week. You will be provided general guidance and information in teaching sessions and be given the chance to explore your subject through independent research. You will receive general information on University study and applications such as global opportunities and personal statement support.
