ST. GEORGE’S UNIVERSITY, IN PARTNERSHIP WITH NORTHUMBRIA UNIVERSITY,
TO HOST “MINI-MED” COURSE 2023” FOR MEDICAL ASPIRANTS IN Thailand
Bangkok, Thailand, 18 May 2023: St. George’s University (SGU), in partnership with Northumbria University, will hold its first “Mini-Med” 3-day course on the campus of its partner, Northumbria University in Newcastle upon Tyne, in the UK. The sessions will be held from 13 – 15 June. SGU invites students from Thailand, in M5 and M6, IB and A-Levels to join.
Since 2019, SGU’s “Mini-Med” course has allowed students to get a glimpse into medical education and experience the broad spectrum of topics they would encounter at medical school. In June 2023, it will be held at Northumbria University and open to students in Thailand for the first time.
Students who enrol in this course will get the opportunity to build meaningful professional connections, learn valuable information during innovative and interactive lectures, and gain practical skills through training, patients’ simulation and lab work in small group sessions.
Participants will learn about the history of medicine, anatomical terminology, the human nervous system, and mental health. The SGU faculty will also enable students to become familiar with medical ethics and emergency medicine.
‘It is imperative for prospective medical students to gain an insight into their chosen field before making any decisions about their higher education. Therefore, the primary objective of the “Mini-Med” course is to give students an in-depth perspective about what to expect while they are being trained to be a doctor, and to envision themselves embarking on a global career in medicine,” said Lily Phommarack, Associate Director, International Academic Affiliations, SGU.
Students will get certificates upon successful completion of the course and will also have the opportunity to interact and network with senior medical academic professionals.
SGU currently has 32 Thai students, as per data as of October 2022. Some students are studying in Grenada’s True Blue campus, while others started their studies at Northumbria University, UK, in partnership with SGU. There are also students doing clinical rotations in hospitals across the US and UK. They are all embarking on their journey to becoming a future doctor serving their community.
Seats are limited, and application ends on 31 May. High school students interested in SGU “Mini-Med” in the UK email Nalinee Jiemvithayanukul, SGU representative in Thailand, at email@example.com for more information.
