Support for Clinical Students

Pastoral Support

All students have a designated Graduate Advisor, currently Dr Simon Yarrow (Retained Lecturer in Clinical Medicine), who is a Consultant Anaesthetist in the Neurosciences Unit. He keeps a close eye on each student’s progress, and is well-placed to offer career advice, help with job applications, act as a referee, and provide extra support for students facing unexpected problems. In addition, Dr Michael Bannon (Dean of Postgraduate Medical Education) is a Fellow of the college, and is able to offer additional careers advice.

Wadham Medical Society

The Wadham Medical Society is particularly active, and a focus for students in all 6 years of the course. There are regular termly meetings with external speakers, the Michaelmas event taking the form of a black-tie dinner in college. Every three years there is a larger gathering to which all previous medical alumni are invited.

Academic Support

Regular bedside tutorials are organised, with a particular emphasis on preparation for the final exams halfway through year 6. Dr Yarrow is supported by Mr Richard Stacey (Consultant Neurosurgeon) and Mr Ian McNab (Consultant Hand Surgeon) as well as 2 Teaching Associates who are junior doctors in training. In addition, many ex-Wadham students working at the John Radcliffe are able to offer ad hoc teaching, and Year 6 students on the Med-Ed module often contribute as well. Our long-term aim is to develop a network of enthusiastic and expert teachers to ensure Wadham’s good reputation in Medicine is maintained.

Dr Yarrow organises more structured teaching in the autumn before finals as part of a consortium of 4 colleges, allowing Wadham students access to other colleges’ lecturers; there is also a mock OSCE exam just before Christmas.
