Here's a closer look at some events students have enjoyed across Australia.
GPSN at the University of Sydney
GPSN US tested the wits and knowledge of the university’s medical students with their annual famous trivia night! A crowd of almost 100 junior and senior medical students battled it out with their trivia expertise in a fun-filled, fast-paced night of general knowledge and medical questions. They also heard a fascinating presentation from GP registrar Rebecca, who discussed the importance of red flags in general practice. With trivia questions ranging from cranial nerves to the Kardashian sisters, everyone had something to bring to the table! More great events are on their way at your local GPSN club!
This club has had a busy two months with three academic events providing great opportunities for over 250 students to brush up on their skills. The year 2 and 4 students were each treated to OSCE workshops, where they practiced six high yield stations and received feedback from senior students, all whole enjoying some pizza. All clinical students were also invited to a procedural skills workshop, where they enjoyed suturing, wound care and trying their hand with opthalmoscopes and otoscopes.
This club hosted a plethora of events through the 2018 year. A movie night was run at Griffith University campus in March earlier in the year, as a mixer event for both society members and students from each university to get to know one another. Multiple OSCE practice nights were held in clinical rooms throughout the year, in conjunction with other societies as Bond as well. A clinical skills night that involved fundoscopy and basic suturing was also run. The last event of the 2018 team was a general practitioners careers night, where three practitioners were invited to talk about their practice.
