The Medicine summer school curriculum is precisely designed to combine practical knowledge and theory in a way that will test your knowledge and broaden your grasp of developing medical trends. The Medicine program is aimed to expand on the scientific information that participants have previously acquired in the classroom and to show how this may be utilized to motivate continued study at university.

Example Modules

  • **Medical Research: “From Bench To Bedside”: **The Nobel Prize in Medicine recognises some of the world’s most important scientific breakthroughs to have revolutionised patient care and our understanding of life. But how are these discoveries made, and more importantly who makes them? You will revisit the principles of the scientific method, delve into the various stages of medical research and the growing necessity for interdisciplinary approaches.
  • Cardiovascular And Respiratory Physiology: “Rhythm of Life”: Tireless breathing keeps our blood oxygenated, while 3 billion heartbeats a lifetime transport it around the body. You will probe scientific questions and consider current and emerging therapies to fight cardiovascular and respiratory diseases. You will also develop a deeper understanding of the roles of CPR and AED in the emergency treatment of heart attacks and address questions such as: ‘Why do some people get mountain sickness?’, ‘Is snoring bad for you?’ and ‘What does an asthma inhaler do?’
  • **Neuroscience And Neuropsychology: “I Think, Therefore I Am”: **You will be given an overview of the basic microanatomy and physiology of neurons, analyse how these cells produce electrical signals (action potentials) and discuss how the 37 trillion cells of your body can communicate and coordinate with one another. You'll explore the power of the placebo effect, and challenge preconceived notions using a variety of optical, auditory and tactile sensory illusions.
  • **Science Conference: **Partake in a mini-science conference where you'll present a research topic assigned earlier in the week. You will be encouraged to view each other’s work critically, ask follow-up questions and engage with the subject matter.
