The International MBBS team has purchased UWorld, an excellent online question bank, to aid you in USMLE preparation. In order to use this resource, please redeem the UWorld subscription code that was emailed to you earlier this month. Redeeming the discount code will add the UWorld QBank to your student account. You can then activate the QBank subscription at any time with no deadline for activation.
Try to do so ASAP as the code will expire on the first week of October if not used, and students who fail to redeem their code will not be issued with another.
Students who cannot access the contents of the message from UWorld must forward their message to email@example.com.
Please note, MBBS4 Y1 and MBBS6 Y1 students will be receiving their codes at the end of Term 1.

HippocraTV is a medical education YouTube channel aimed at healthcare students and trainees. We produce fun, innovative videos on medical topics ranging from ECG interpretation to biochemistry, as well as topical content on issues such as the Zika virus. At present, we receive over 40,000 hits per calendar month and have over 20,000 regular subscribers on YouTube.
For the 2016/17 academic year, we are looking to recruit 3-4 medical or other healthcare students to join our team. As a student producer, you will be involved in content creation at every level, including writing, presenting, filming and editing new videos. You will be expected to attend short weekly meetings as well as giving up your time to film and edit new content.
In return, you will have access to industry-standard equipment and software as well as mentoring and training from doctors and technical experts. You’d be joining a growing but close-knit team committed to creating a truly unique new education platform.
Applicants should be committed and enthusiastic, with a keen interest in teaching and an eye for innovation. Applications are accepted from all healthcare disciplines and from all years of the course. Experience in videography and animation is desirable but by no means mandatory.
Regrettably we are currently only able to offer this to London-based students.
If you are interested in joining our team, visit www.hippocratv.com for more details on how to apply or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to hearing from you!
After multiple sold out events in the preceding year, Oslersoom.com are proud to present the inaugural "Essential Medicine" for this academic year.
Run by academics and clinical doctors, this high-yield course will cover arguably the most important topics taught in medical school - preparing you for year 3 ward work and exams!
Last year tickets sold out, and to students all over the UK and abroad. Only 50 places left.
Day 1 (Saturday September 24, 2016 – 8.30am to 5pm)
Cardiology, Respiratory, Nephrology
Day 2 (Sunday September 25, 2016 – 8.30am to 5pm)
Neurology, Gastroenterology, Hepatology, Endocrinology
We will take you through all high yield theory (symptoms, signs, differentials, investigations and management), as well as practical application (OSCE history taking, clinical examination, communication and presentation).
This course will help you answer questions such as:
What is the diagnosis?
What is the most appropriate initial test?
What is the most appropriate diagnostic test?
What is the most appropriate initial treatment?
What is the most appropriate definitive treatment?
This course will also teach you how to succeed in OSCEs, and on the wards, starting now:
Focus on high yield stations. How to take these in structured manner, why each question is important; and, how to gather evidence for a diagnosis, and against differential diagnoses, quickly…!
What are the steps to each examination? What do the signs mean? What commonly comes up? What tricks can I use to succeed in my stations?
Is this course relevant to me?
While targeted at students in their first clinical year (i.e. T-year), we aim to teach to a very high level on all topics listed in an exam-focused way. If you are examined on these topic this year, or want to get a head start for next year, then this course is for you. Year 4 or 5 students, in the past have found this very helpful, especially as a refresher, and to form a solid grounding prior to tackling speciality and advanced topics.
We have listed selected feedback, and tutor lists, on the webpage link. Otherwise, ask the students in the year above about their thoughts on this course as thousands of students attended around the UK (and some internationally) in the preceding academic year.
