Up to £300 in year one, and up to £225 in year two towards the cost of medical equipment and books.

Travel/elective grant

Up to £1,000 towards clinical elective placement.

Annual Fund

Additional applications can be made to this fund to help fund academic or extra-curricular activities that are not predominantly leisure orientated.  Applications of over £500 will take in account the applicants' financial circumstances.

Clinical Tutorials

College clinical tutorials are arranged by the fellow for clinical medicine, and occur approximately weekly during the clinical portion of year 4, and in the build up to final clinical examinations in year 6.  These tutorials are focused on developing clinical acumen in medicine and surgery through the examination of patients under the guidance of one of a number of practising clinicians associated with the college and chosen for their excellence in teaching.  Students are also offered clinical science tutorials (mainly case-based teaching) throughout the three clinical years.

An advantage of the smaller number of students in each clinical year, is that the tutors will get to know the students well, allowing them to offer pastoral support as needed, and ensuring that tutorials can be tailored towards the needs of the individuals.

Rent (per term)

Starts at approx. £160 per week

Clinical Tutorials?

Two college lecturers act as directors of clinical medicine: Dr Michala Pedersen (consultant cardiologist and electrophysiologist) and Mr James Gilbert (consultant transplant and vascular access surgeon).  They co-ordinate all clinical medicine teaching at Christ Church including the provision of tutorials, career development and pastoral care. There will be weekly teaching sessions provided by three clinical teaching assistants who are middle grade clinical doctors, and this is in the form of bedside teaching and more knowledge-based sessions. Mock OSCEs and MCQs are organised leading up to the Year 4 and Year 6 examinations. Additionally, there is an opportunity and structure for peer-to-peer teaching amongst clinical students which is greatly enjoyed by all involved, strengthens clinical group cohesion and develops teaching and communication skills.

The directors of clinical medicine meet with every clinical student each term to offer pastoral care, guidance, and career advice. Once a year we offer CV preparation sessions. We also invite each student year group to dine at High Table each year. The Christ Church Medical Society hosts termly events, such as receptions, seminars and an annual keynote lecture and formal dinner. Additionally, Christ Church medical students from all six years benefit from a termly joint teaching session followed by dinner in hall, integrating the year groups and allowing informal meetings between students and preclinical and clinical lectures, tutors and fellows.

CLINICAL TUTORIALS?

Clinical students are offered mentoring, bedside teaching and exam practice by Dr Douglas Crockett, College Lecturer in Clinical Medicine (Anaesthetics) and a team of 4 clinical teaching associates supported by College Fellows in Clinical Medicine including Dr James Kennedy (Geratology), Prof Keith Channon (Cardiology), Dr Katherine Bull (Renal), Sarah Howles (Urology) and Prof Andrew Farmer (General Practice). Prof Neil Herring (Cardiology), who directs studies for pre-clinical students, also provides support and continuity through the medical course. The focus is on facilitating links between students and practitioners at the John Radcliffe Hospital and within local health care providers.  Teaching sessions are normally given once a week and may increase in frequency around exam times.  Both medicine and surgery are covered, with an emphasis on clinical skills.

The college medical society is named after Sir Roger Bannister, a very distinguished Neurologist who was a 5th year medical student at Exeter when he became the first person to run a mile in under 4 minutes at the Iffley Road Stadium. The Society holds speaker meetings, presentation evenings and dinners for current and old members and aims to help integrate the pre-clinical and clinical years as well as the strong biomedical science community within the College.

Green Templeton

Green Templeton website

College information supplied in Michaelmas Term 2021.

Travel/elective grant

Annual grant for academic activities (currently £220 per year plus double allowance in final year) can be saved up to use for elective. This amounts to a grant of £880 for clinical students entering GTC in 2020.

Additional grant of £300 available for overseas Year 5 placements (Paediatrics or Obstetrics). 

Those attending conferences or courses can apply (competitively) for further funds up to a maximum of £500 (e.g. for presenting a poster at an international conference). There are also some College prizes awarded on merit. 

Clinical Tutorials

Clinical teaching is delivered by Joan and Richard Doll Clinical Tutorial Fellows and by a number of Teaching Associates, led by Dr Laurence Leaver. Dr Alexander Finlayson oversees support for students enrolled on the GEM programme.

There are seminars on Tuesday evenings, every week (not just in ‘full’ term) during all of Y4 and from July to January of Y6 (i.e. until Finals). There are also bedside clinical skills teaching sessions for groups of 4-6 students for approximately 1h/week provided by Teaching Associates (mostly specialty trainees) on the wards in Y4 and Y6. We also have similar teaching associates at District General Hospitals (Reading, Stoke Mandeville, Wycombe, Swindon), and for the Y5 specialities (Paeds, O&G, Neuro, MSK, GP, & Psych). We also organise extra sessions, often at weekends, for surgical skills practice, BLS practice, exam past-paper practice, or extra core teaching (e.g. on radiology). Prior to Y4 and Y6 exams there is a practice ‘mock OSCE’ with patients. Students often teach those in the year(s) below either formally or informally and can make use of examination couches in college.

We have up to 100 medical students and dozens of medically qualified Fellows. There is sufficient critical mass to allow you to find others with similar interests - including many established clinicians and researchers (not just Fellows, but Teaching Associates, Members of Common Room and alumni). It is usually possible to find someone who can advise on a project, help with elective contacts, or provide useful careers advice. It is also likely that there will be enough people attending to make an extra teaching session worthwhile.

There is a thriving GTC medical society, the Richard Doll Society (RDS), which is open to all members of GTC past and present. The RDS usually organises several dinners, speaker meetings and other events each year, welcoming back the ‘lost tribe’ of junior doctors too.

GTC also hosts a number of formal lectures, workshops, and conferences, which appeal to its constituents and the wider academic community. Examples are available on the GTC website; these include the Health & Care Seminar series and the Sheila Kitzinger Programme of seminars, The Medical Humanities Summer School, policy lectures, debates or other events in the College on medical, legal and social issues. See the Academic Projects section of the Green Templaton website

Number of years for which accommodation is available

Normally 2 years.

Rent (per week or month)

£550-£805 rates per month (2021-22) for a single room depending on size and facilities. Limited numbers of double rooms, flats, and houses for families are also available. Rent can be waived during electives or other prolonged absence.

Equipment and library

New students receive a free Littmann IV stethoscope, tendon hammer and pen torch; and a free copy of the OHCM. They also have access to borrow an ophthalmoscope/otoscope whenever needed. The Library has a superb collection for BM students including multiple copies of books from the Clinical School's recommended reading lists, which significantly reduces the amount students will need to spend on purchasing books.  Students may suggest any core texts which are not already held.

Management in Medicine programme

The Management in Medicine programme is a unique asset, which helps clinical students (alongside others) to learn leadership and management skills (for both individual and team-based effectiveness and efficiency), and to understand better, health care delivery. These skills make a huge difference both in clinical practice and in research teams; they are increasingly important for doctors but are not yet part of the curriculum for BM. The scheme allows opportunities for shadowing a senior manager and/or for working on a ‘live’ service improvement project as well as a rolling programme of seminars and workshops (which are outside office hours and will not clash with medical school commitments). In addition, GTC has a mentoring scheme

Regular exam-focused bedside tutorials are normally held at these hospitals during the students' 4th and 6th years of training. During the Covid-19 restrictions, clinical students have instead been supported by the provision of remote tutorials where appropriate. More general educational supervision, pastoral support and clinical references are provided when required. In addition we have three junior lecturers and a local GP who provide tutorials in medicine and surgery that are highly rated by the students. Finally, outside of the current pandemic restrictions, two very popular Medical Dinners are held per year with clinical speakers, open to Hertford pre-clinical and clinical medical students at no charge.

St Hilda's

College information supplied in Michaelmas Term 2021.

Book grant

The College library has multiple copies of all core texts for all clinical years, and responds quickly to new requests. In addition the College offers a £60 book grant for first year clinical students.

Equipment and Travel/elective grants

Clinical students can apply for £200 towards clinical equipment and £500 towards the 6th year elective. In addition the college has generous support for travel associated with the students’ elective (max £1,000) and any travel associated with year 5 placements overseas, as well as conferences. If required there are also hardship funds to support all graduate students.

Clinical Tutorials

St Hilda’s is unique at Oxford in having such a close-working and joined-up approach to pre-clinical and clinical support, in both pastoral and academic support; there is no barrier between the two stages of training at Hilda's. Our students feel that the Clinical Tutors know them even before they are in year 4, and the Pre-clinical Tutors are in touch during every stage of the clinical years.

The Clinical Medicine Fellow, Dr Catherine Swales, is the college graduate advisor for all the clinical students at St Hilda’s as well as being the Director of Clinical Studies in the Clinical Medicine School at Oxford University.

As a College Graduate Advisor Dr Swales undertakes termly appraisals with clinical students, provides pastoral care and advises on work experience. As the Clinical Medicine Tutor Dr Swales oversees, and with the other Clinical Lecturers, delivers college clinical teaching for years 4, 5 and 6. The majority of this clinical teaching is focused in year 4 and 6, as year 5 mostly covers sub-speciality training (e.g. paediatrics, psychiatry). However Dr Swales sees all clinical medicine students regularly throughout year 5 for appraisal. 

Contact time is complex as students are often at district general hospitals, but overall St Hilda’s offers approximately 1-2 hours teaching in both medicine and surgery per week in years 4 and 6. Contact time increases to 4-6 hours per week for each of medicine and surgery approaching examination periods. Teaching sessions can be didactic teaching, looking over past papers, discussing complex cases, communication skills training and examinations skills teaching/assessment; and is tailored to meet the group’s needs and then individuals if needed. Tutors also provide a mock clinical exam.

Medical Society

The medical students feel part of the College’s Medical Community. We offer a lot of subject events for medical students and the clinical students can also attend Graduate Dinners every year at which students and their college advisors get a chance to meet and socialise. The Medical Society regularly hosts seminars and conferences involving Alumnae and Friends, that are not only of widespread interest to both undergraduate and graduate students but also offer opportunities for career networking.

Number of years for which accommodation is available

Graduate accommodation is offered to all incoming graduates on a first come, first served basis once funding has been secured. Accommodation is in East Oxford. 

Rent

Rates range from £6,509 (standard rooms) to £8,770 (en-suite rooms). Rental periods can be negotiated with the Accommodation Manager.

St Hugh’s offers tutorial support in all relevant areas of Medicine and Medical Sciences. The College has built an extensive clinical teaching team with more than ten tutors and lecturers offering a very broad range of expertise and led by Dr David Holdsworth (Cardiologist) and Dr Laura Watts (Rheumatologist). There is a strong sense of community, since more than half of our clinical tutors have been students at St Hugh’s, and are now at different stages of their careers from junior doctor to consultant. Tutorial frequency is geared towards need in any clinical year with particular focus on years 4 and 6. Provision includes small group clinical tutorials and bedside teaching, and can be geared to the specific requirements of students in the year cohort. In research, St Hugh’s has particular strengths in neuroscience, endocrinology, anatomy, genetics, cancer biology, developmental biology, cell-cell signalling, cardiac physiology, neurodegenerative disease and pathology.

Number of years for which accommodation is available

Accommodation is offered to incoming graduates on a first come, first served basis, once funding has been secured; students in subsequent clinical years are also able to apply for accommodation, although they often prefer to live nearer to the hospital.

Number of Places

6 per year: St John's does not actively seek clinical student applications from outside college, and expects all of its own to remain for the clinical course. Hence there are generally no 'spare' places. However, with some students taking 'sabbatical' years or even undertaking intercalated DPhils there can occasionally be places available. The college is prepared to consider applications from other Oxford colleges, with the consent of the other college’s tutors.

We also have a number of foundation doctors who have graduated from Oxford in the last few years who provide clinical tutorials to the earlier year clinical students (currently Aaron Henry, Sanah Ali and Eva Zilber). Tutorials are bedside tutorials or classroom/online, and we do role play sessions in practice for the clinical OSCEs. Additional tutorials can also be arranged to cover other specialties if requested. Many tutors are also involved in research, and welcome contact from students interested in getting involved in research or finding out more about their specialty. In recent years, final year clinical students have run a peer-based course (‘Surviving the Wards’) for the early clinical years, and historically final year students have given tutorials and then joined the clinical teaching team if staying in Oxford for their foundation programme.
