In2MedSchool Work Experience Series 2022 - Life of an ITU Doctor


Since COVID occurred, many students are struggling to find medical work experience in preparation for their medical school application hence In2MedSchool has decided to start a Work Experience series to give our mentees an insight into some healthcare professions, imitating an actual work experience placement in the hospital. First off, Dr Anthony Ng, a Honorary Specialty Registrar in Intensive Care and Respiratory Medicine at Addenbrooke’s hospital in Cambridge joined us to about the principles of intensive care unit (ICU), common presentations and duties of a doctor in ICU. Many students enjoyed this talk as we hope students are able to reflect on the topics discussed in this webinar and feel like they shadowed an ICU doctor for a short time.

Panel Interview - The Good, Bad, Average

 

Just like the various style of MMI interviews in a previous webinar, we decided to cover it for Panel Interviews too! A quick overview of the Panel interview was presented by our own I2MS Academia Director, Dr Adrienn Gyori. We then had current medical students who acted out the different types of panel interviews in action, allowing the audience to see how a Panel interview would run if it was bad, good or average. All of the interviews were then reflected at the end, giving the audience top tips and tricks in scoring well in their panel interview!

In2MedSchool Work Experience Series 2022 - Meet the Surgeon

In our 2nd Work Experience series, we invited Dr Emma Watts, a ST4 ENT surgical trainee at Walsall Manor Hospital to share her knowledge about surgery and the training pathway with our students. It was an inspiring and insightful talk as she mentioned her weekly routine, a brief timetable of her days, various images from clinical scenarios seen in ENT surgery. Dr Watts even took the extra mile to film a short film of different healthcare professionals such as nurses and other trainees that she works with to ask them about their careers, what they enjoy about their careers, what an advanced nurse practitioner does along with other various questions, in which our audience really valued learning a lot from it. This was a very special webinar where we were able to introduce so many different healthcare workers and to hear more about their thoughts and experience so would definitely recommend watching our Youtube recording ( @in2medschool ) if you haven’t done so!
