Teaching opportunities

The Sydney Adventist Hospital Clinical School of the University of Sydney is based at Sydney Adventist Hospital and delivers medical student training across four years of the postgraduate Sydney Medical Program.

Medical student teaching is very enjoyable, helps you brush up on topics you might not have looked at for a while and can be incredibly rewarding. It attracts CME/CPD points as well as counting towards contributions for Clinical Academic Titles (CAT).

Teaching occurs at various times through the week depending on the type of teaching session. Teaching can include history taking, clinical examination, communication skills, specific lectures and tutorials on Anaesthesia and Critical Care, simulation-based teaching, student examination, higher degree research supervision and other research supervision opportunities.

In the first two years of the course (Stage 1 and 2) teaching is delivered across a number of blocks; Foundation Studies, Musculoskeletal Sciences, Respiratory Medicine, Haematology, Cardiovascular Sciences, Neuroscience Vision & Behaviour, Endocrine/Nutrition/Sexual Health/HIV, Renal Urology, Gastroenterology/Nutrition and Oncology/Palliative Care.

In the third and fourth years (Stage 3) students complete Clinical Attachments, which are blocks of time (2-8 weeks) within particular specialties. They also receive other forms of structured teaching such as Clinical Reasoning Sessions and Patient-Doctor Bedside Tutorials.
