Changing the conversation about health

Our Student Summer School 2015

summerschool200x‘Healthy communities: a 360° approach’ – The benefits of health and social care practitioners working in partnership with local communities.

Two-day Residential Multi-Disciplinary Student Summer School

University of East Anglia, 4th-5th September 2015

The 2015 College of Medicine Summer School included talks from enthusiastic leading researchers and speakers:

  • Dr Michael Dixon O.B.E.
  • Dr James Fleming
  • Anna Minton
  • James Wood
  • The Bromley-By-Bow Centre

It also offers a series of interactive workshops with real-life patients speaking about their experiences. In groups, students will be able to present to a panel of judges about their idea to improve the health and social care service in East Anglia… with prizes up for grabs throughout the two days!

Of course this is an excellent multi-disciplinary networking opportunity and there is a poster competition with generous cash prizes!

For just £80 you can make the most of this opportunity! (actual value £265)
This includes ALL teaching, catering, accommodation and a place at the Summer School dinner.

All applicants will be put into a ballot to win a place at the AbbVie Conference on Sustainable Healthcare later this year (The King’s Fund, London, 2 December 2015)

Our previous Summer School graduates have said:

“The learning opportunities provided were excellent and extremely relevant to my studies and future career. The multi-disciplinary environment was invaluable and I thoroughly enjoyed the feeling of mutual respect”

“I consider this to be the most beneficial educational experience I have had to date and I have already had the opportunity to use some of what I have learned to help others”

Many thanks to the University of East Anglia for hosting this event, and to our generous sponsors for making this event affordable for students: Waitrose, CRC Press, Wesleyan, Medical Protection Society.
