Thank you!

I want to send out my heartfelt thanks to all the wonderful educators who have done such a fantastic job guiding our students’ learning on their journey to becoming doctors in 2012.

All the team at Northern Clinical School are proud to be part of the medical program and are immensely grateful to all those tutors and supervisors, mentors, examiners and facilitators who have volunteered their time and expertise. The students feed back to us how much they appreciate and benefit from your contribution, and they look forward to working beside you in the future.

Shortly we will be sending out a letter asking for expressions of interest in being part of the team next year, and I do hope to hear from as many of you as possible. If you would like any more information about being part of the program please don’t hesitate to contact me at any time.

Student news through the grapevine

Students have enjoyed another year of clinical teaching at Manly and Mona Vale Hospitals. As a testament to this we have heard through the grapevine that at least four new doctors who spent their first clinical year as a student at Manly will be returning to the northern beaches in 2013 to undertake their internship.

Stage 3 students have clinical rotations at both Manly and Mona Vale and enjoy the relaxed, supportive, friendly, hands on approach to learning new skills.

Stage 1 students spend every Wednesday at Manly hospital for Pt/Dr tutorials in clinical examination and communications skills. With the help of some dedicated and motivated senior and junior doctors within the hospital, local GP's and nurse educators, the students enjoy their first real introduction to medicine and the hospital environment. They really appreciate the friendly atmophere at Manly hospital, easing them with enthusiasm and confidence into the clinical environment.
