The Mentors Program

2017 is the seventh year of the Student Mentor Scheme.

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.
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.

GP "Words on Wednesday"

Previously the “Tuesday Talks” noe "Words on Wednesdays" 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.

The series of “Words on Wednesday” for 2017 are “open to all” - medical students, hospital staff, local doctors, and members of the community.

Time: 1.00pm with a pre-talk light lunch from 12.30pm:
Venue: Auditorium, Level 2 Sydney Medical School Nepean The University of Sydney 62 Derby Street Kingswood NSW 2747

Wednesday 15th March
Mr Barry Roots, Foundation Headmaster of Penrith Anglican College.

Wednesday 17th May

Thursday 5th October - Speaker to be arranged.

I would certainly like to make you feel very welcome in attending. They are an ideal opportunity to meet and promote collegiality.

Best Wishes
Adrian Sheen
