About Publications 

We are in the process of developing two publications aimed at medical students to be published before Semester 1 commences in 2022. Our aim is to provide students with comprehensive resources that will complement their clinical rotations.

 

  1. Ward Round Guide

    This will outline key cases and procedures that students can expect to see on each clinical rotation.
     

  2. OSCE Clinical Skills Guide: 

    This booklet will take students through core presentations seen in clinical practice (e.g. chest pain, shortness of breath, abdominal pain, etc.), covering areas such as history, examination, and investigation findings. This publication will also serve to complement the OSCE Video Series that will be launching in early 2022. 

 

In the application, you will have the opportunity to preference which project you would like to work on, however, if there is an insufficient balance of numbers, you may be allocated to work on the alternate project. 

 

Expected Timeline:


We will begin content development in November after exams with the aim of finalizing publications by January for official publication. 
 

Given the short timeline, we expect commitment to a concentrated workload from all team members.
