This includes the completion of a recognised First Aid course, as part of our Time to Shine programme. In addition, our Medicine students will work together to research key issues and trends in 21st century Medicine, draw conclusions, and present their cases to their peers. In doing so, students will develop key skills in presenting their own ideas and forming clear, cogent arguments.
