MSOM academia


About us

MSOM Academia was established in 2019 to supply medical education outside the university curriculum, helping to prepare future doctors as they transition into the working world, as well as train MSOM’s medical screening programme volunteers.

What we do

We are here to support UK and international students at every stage of their medical career:

  • We hold interactive workshops and conferences to improve their knowledge in specific areas and get to grips with the basics of important procedures.

  • We organise online medical education sessions to stay connected and informed during the current pandemic- which include the student led Zoom Through sessions as well as the On Call sessions which are led by UK and international medical doctors.

  • Our training helps students entering MSOM’s medical screening programmes. They are designed to enhance various hand-on skills such as history taking, venepuncture and blood pressure measurement. Students are then examined by a doctor to ensure they are competent enough to examine citizens.

  • We provide informative booklets and leaflets to those attending our workshops and screening programmes to further aid education. All our materials are approved by a doctor to ensure we are delivering the correct information.

My experience so far has been filled with work, drizzled with fun and sprinkled with some interesting choices. And perhaps, iced a bit too much that I even slipped! You can tell I like baking.

I think my biggest achievement in my years of university is not being addicted to coffee…yet

The best part about uni so far has been interacting with patients, it reminds you why you came so far to study in the first place

The first step I took inside of the medical world, was also the first step I took outside of my comfort zone. Since then, I’ve always been finding solutions for endless challenges successfully. I guarantee you can too!
