Detailed information about specialties

Anaesthetics

Students will begin by taking part in a short series of tutorials and workshops hosted by experienced members of University Faculty, as well as an opportunity to take part in a simulation session.   

Clinical experience will be gained in theatres across all Oxford sites of the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust, with exposure to a wide variety of sub-speciality areas. Opportunities also exist to present interesting cases or data to colleagues.    

Students need to have covered at least two years of clinical training, but specific anaesthetic experience is not mandatory.  Electives run for four or eight weeks and Elective students will be expected to participate in sessions with Oxford students. 

 The Elective placement will be divided between the John Radcliffe Hospital, the Churchill Hospital and the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre.

 Elective placements can take place over four or eight weeks.

 Elective students must participate with Oxford students.

 Elective students will spend time in theatre and on the wards.

Cardiovascular Medicine

Elective placements are available in the Department of Cardiovascular Medicine, based at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford. The clinical department is a busy centre with all cardiology and cardiothoracic facilities available and the unit takes cardiology referrals from nearby district hospitals for invasive procedures, surgery or expert management. There are many opportunities for learning from patients within the unit, in addition to observing specific procedures such as cardiac catheterisation/stenting, trans-oesphageal echocardiography, cardiac magnetic resonance imaging, permanent pacing, electrophysiological testing and radiofrequency ablation, and cardiac nuclear imaging.

Oxford University medical students are present in the department at various times throughout the year, for a period of two weeks each. During these periods, there are tutorials for all students in addition to the clinical experience outlined above.

Due to the demand for places and the need to accommodate students, usually only one Elective student can be accepted at a time, for a maximum of two months. Elective students participate with the Oxford students and can be supervised. Research can be undertaken but this would require prior specific arrangement with the research team.

  • The Elective placement will take place at the John Radcliffe Hospital.
  • Elective placements run for a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 8 weeks.
  • Elective students must participate with Oxford students and be supervised.
  • Elective students will spend time in theatre, outpatient clinics and on the wards.

Clinical Genetics

Clinical Genetics is a predominantly out-patient based speciality which deals with the investigation, diagnosis, management and counselling for genetic disorders. The Department of Clinical Genetics in Oxford has 4 NHS Consultants, 3 Academics (Professor, Senior Lecturer and Lecturer), several specialist Professorial advisors and both general and cancer genetic counsellors. Unlike many other medical specialities the clinic appointments tend to be an hour in length and several family members may be seen together.

Much of the work in Clinical Genetics involves preparation time for the clinics and meetings to discuss difficult cases. Some clinics are "general" and include a wide range of both paediatric and adult cases whilst other are specialist clinics including those for Huntington disease, Marfan's Syndrome, neurofibromatosis types I and II, and Breast and Bowel cancer clinics. Many of the clinics are held jointly with other specialities such as Neurology, Ophthalmology, Cardiology, Endocrinology, Immunology and Dermatology. There are also close links with the Prenatal and Neonatology units and occasional ward referrals. Most of the specialist and some of the general clinics are held in Oxford and the remainder are held in outlying regions.

The work is very varied and students will have an opportunity to see a very wide range of disorders as well as an opportunity to focus in depth on an area of their interest. Students usually give a short presentation at the end of their attachment on a case they have seen.

  • The Elective placement will be spent between the Oxford hospitals and surrounding hospitals.
  • The Elective period can run for four, six, eight or ten weeks.
  • Elective students can be supervised or possibly research can be arranged on an individual basis.
  • Elective students will spend time in the outpatient clinics and occasionally on the wards. The Medical Genetics labs might be able to accommodate visitors with prior agreement.

Clinical Geratology (Geriatric Medicine)

The Department is active in clinical work, teaching and research.   Students are very welcome and may be attached for periods of between four and ten weeks.

The work of the department is varied in terms of:

1. acuity (acute, subacute, chronic)

2. syndrome/presentation e.g. there are many specialist clinics (e.g. TIA, movement disorder, memory) and specialised inpatient settings e.g. Acute and Rehabilitation Stroke Units, Trauma/orthogeriatrics.

3. location. Geriatricians work everywhere - from the Emergency Department at the John Radcliffe Hospital (Oxford) to Community Hospitals (of which there are nine in Oxfordshire).

Elective students will learn about the assessment of elderly patients with multiple pathology and non-specific presentation.   You will participate in setting goals for therapy and in multidisciplinary meetings both in a hospital and community setting.   You will also again experience in the management of acutely ill elderly patients on both the Acute Medicine service and within the Acute Geratology wards.   You will work with an assistant or specialist registrar and be supervised by a named consultant.

There will be ample opportunity to sample the breadth and depth of clinical services and the Elective can be tailored to some extent to reflect individual interest within the speciality.

Clinical Immunology

The Immunology service in Oxford consists of Clinical and Laboratory Immunology, together providing a comprehensive range of learning opportunities for the student.

Clinical Immunology is an outpatient service based on the John Radcliffe site where each of the three consultants holds weekly adult immunology clinics for patients with suspected or proven immunodeficiency, both primary and secondary (but not HIV infection). Two day-long nurse-lead immunoglobulin infusion clinics are held every week. These clinics treat patients with antibody deficiency as well as those with neurological disorders. The unit runs a large home immunoglobulin infusion programme. There are weekly multi-specialist vasculitis clinics, fortnightly joint paediatric infection and immunology clinics, fortnightly drug allergy clinics, fortnightly joint adult allergy clinics with dermatology and a weekly desensitisation clinic.

Although most of the activities will be in Clinical Immunology, the student will also be expected to spend some time in Laboratory Immunology (based on the Churchill Hospital site) where a comprehensive range of immunological tests for autoimmunity, immunodeficiency, lympho-proliferative diseases and allergy are undertaken.

The paediatrics programme runs for a maximum of eight weeks. Elective students can participate with the Oxford students or be supervised.

The course structure for students participating in the Oxford programme is as follows:

The course is divided into 3 blocks.

In the first 2 weeks,  we will cover all the essential topics including:

1. History taking and examination

2. Growth module

3. Development module

4. Recognition of a sick child module

5. New born module

6. Child protection

7. Basic life support

In the middle 4 weeks, this is an opportunity to see, clerk and examine as many children as possible to develop good clinical skills. It is important that you try and see as broad a range of problems as possible during this period. This will mean attending specialist outpatient clinics, community clinics and neonatal units, as well as doing acute hospital paediatrics. These activities are not specifically timetabled. The opportunities are there, however, and it is up to you to make the most of them.

Halfway through your clinical attachment you should have a mid-course appraisal with your tutor. This gives an opportunity for you to get some feedback on how you are getting on and to discuss the areas you feel you need more time to work on.

In the final 2 weeks,  the presentations and assessments take place. It is important not to simply disappear to the library, but continue to take the opportunity to fill any gaps in your experience, for example by attending outpatients, the neonatal unit or doing another on-call.

Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery

The Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery has a comprehensive range of current techniques and caseload, with the exception of major burn care which is transferred elsewhere. There are particularly strong interests in craniofacial and cleft lip/palate surgery, complex upper limb and hand reconstruction, major trauma (especially lower limbs) urogenital and head and neck cancer reconstruction. The department has an exceptionally good stock of journals and some interesting areas of library stock on site, enabling easy study and reference for teaching. There are active research programmes in several areas, although these are rarely suitable for short term Elective projects. However, teaching (albeit peripatetic) is frequent and offered by many of the staff; an active learning environment is fostered and is usually appreciated by visiting students.

We welcome Elective students warmly, but are particularly keen to encourage those undertaking true ‘Electives’ – usually far from base country and not as a substitute for absent teaching in basic aspects of surgery in their teaching institution. We do not run a specific Elective teaching programme, but rather welcome visiting students to the department to join in all aspects of patient care (within the usual constraints of student roles) and to develop an interest in one or other specific area. Individual interests will be nurtured, and we are always happy to give guidance on the development of an interest or project, even if it is best served by the student travelling outside the unit or collaborating with a basic science department within the University.

We see the Elective period as one of enormous potential value to the student, and welcome new ideas, and thoughts from visitors. If a student comes with enthusiasm and a willingness to offer help and interest, usually that student will be richly rewarded. This is not a department in which to ‘serve time’; we would rather have one keen and interested student than 10 who want to visit simply for the benefit of their CV. Plastic Surgery is creative, innovative and fun and we enjoy sharing our enthusiasm for the discipline with others who want to have a taste of that enjoyment.

We recommend that visiting students spend 4-6 weeks maximum unless they are very self motivated and able to demonstrate pursuit of an appropriate project without excessive demand on supervision. We do not have time to generate and support students in generating projects for their own CV gain; However, if keen students do observe work in the unit for a month and become interested in a specific area with identified project goals, we are keen to encourage further periods of study up to a total of 10 weeks.

  • The Elective placement will take place at the John Radcliffe, Churchill and NOC sites.
  • Elective students can spend between four to ten weeks in the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
  • The Elective student does not have to take part in rotations/attachments with Oxford students unless they wish to. They can be supervised only or spend time in research.
  • Elective students will spend time in theatre, outpatient clinics and on the wards.

Psychiatry

Oxford medical students undertake an eight week course in Psychiatry in year 5 of their course. On Fridays, they participate in lectures and tutorials. During the remainder of the week they are based with community Mental Health Teams, usually in General Adult Psychiatry, but often also in Adolescent Psychiatry, Forensic Psychiatry and Old Age Psychiatry. Elective students may participate in the whole eight week course, in the first four weeks, or in the final four weeks.

Clinical attachments in psychiatry are linked to an individual community mental health team. This team covers a specific geographical area in Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire or Berkshire and its activities will include inpatient care, outpatient care and community assessments. Elective students will be attached in the same way as home students, but there may be opportunities for additional, more focused study.

  • Elective placements will take place at the Warneford and Littlemore Hospitals, but travel within an area of Oxfordshire covered by the specific team will be required.
  • Elective students can spend four or eight weeks in the Department of Psychiatry.
  • Elective students must take part in the same rotations/attachments as Oxford students except by separate negotiation.
  • Elective students will spend time in outpatient clinics, on the wards, and on community visits.
