Medical Students

We are looking for patients to help in medical student training from ‘one off’ discussions through to being linked to a student for over a year to help them gain a deeper understanding of a health condition.

The longer (narrative medicine course) programme involves the student talking with you around 4-6 times over an 18-month period to find out what it is like to live with a long-term medical condition. Currently they ‘meet’ remotely via a video call (ideally on the team’s platform – they just email you a link). They would want to learn about your experience of healthcare, the problem, and its treatment from your perspective. They meet with a GP tutor at intervals and write an essay about what they have learned at the end of the course.

If you would like to be involved, please let us know which of the above you would be interested in.
