The Mentors Program

2014 will be the fifth year of the Student Mentor Scheme.
I did survey the students recently and was delighted to find that overall there was a very positive impression of the scheme and with many findings are very welcoming.
I believe for those mentors that are actively involved it has also been a rewarding process. Naturally there is a broad spectrum of replies but I hope that the Student Mentor Scheme will continue to grow and be an important part of the Nepean Campus.

Tuesday GP Talks

The “Tuesday Talks” were an initiative of the Discipline of General Practice.
The main concept was twofold:
The first purpose was to have high profile speakers address topics which will broaden the perspective of students and the medical profession.
It was a great pleasure to have the talks attended by the broader community as the sessions were open to all.

The second purpose was to provide the opportunity for GP Registrars to be involved with the University. Too often presentation skills learned during training are lost for the lack of the chance to present interesting cases and interesting conditions.
