AMSS Teaching Series #

The AMSS Teaching Series lectures have been written to supplement student learning and act as a form of self-assessment. 'Core Content' lectures cover topics that students should be very familiar with by the end of the rotation. 'End of Rotation' lectures cover some more peripheral, or challenging, content. A pre-clinical organ system-based lecture series is in development.

MedTransit #

Don't understand how to CBL or where the best coffee spots are in the West End? We've got you covered. In MedTransit you will be paired up with second year mentors who will offer you advice over your first semester. They will be able to offer advice on study techniques at uni, point you towards great resources and answer any other questions you may have.

Year 1 ClinPrac #

Year 1 ClinPrac aims to give first years extra practice and feedback on your history and physical examination skills. The tutorials will be run by second year students and reflect the topics that you are covering in your Clinical Practice tutorials, but your tutors will also be flexible to your needs.

ClinPrac is held regularly and sessions are open to all first years who would like to attend that week, no commitment required.

For more information on ClinPrac, please contact the EdPrograms Coordinators, edprograms@amss.org.au.

Year 3 ClinPrac #

Year 3 ClinPrac aims to ensure third years have the opportunity to consolidate their learning from their weekly hospital experiences and ask questions in a safe environment. The tutorials will be run by a clinical year student (year 4-6) and be tailored to both high yield revision topics for the Year 3 OSCE, and any areas of concern you may have.

ClinPrac is held regularly and sessions are open to all third years who would like to attend that week, no commitment required.

For more information on ClinPrac, please contact the EdPrograms Coordinators, edprograms@amss.org.au.

Peer-2-Peer (P2P) #

The older years have accrued knowledge over their years at med school. Peer-2-Peer is your opportunity to take advantage of their wisdom. This is a student-run education program that facilitates tutoring for small groups of pre-clins by more senior medical students who once stood where you are now. Sessions cover the essentials of your CBL cases, provide assistance with difficult concepts and offer high- yield exam preparation techniques.

If you’re a First or Second Year Student wishing to be tutored in 2019, please fill out the following form.

If you’re a Clinical Student wishing to tutor a Peer-2- Peer group in 2019, please fill out the following form.
