Potential Projects | Becoming a Doctor
I am delighted to be able to direct current medical students towards the new Becoming a Doctor projects!
In March 2020 I started working as a member of the Becoming a Doctor team. Initially, this was to help organise and raise awareness for the first #MedStudentCovid twitter chat.
CALLING ALL UK MEDICAL STUDENTS— Becoming a Doctor (@BecomingaDr) March 26, 2020
What can you do as a medical student during #COVID19?
Join us on Sun 29 March at 18 00 GMT for our national twitter chat #MedStudentCovid
Connect with medical students, junior doctors, academics, health leaders & key organisations #BecomingaDr pic.twitter.com/uKYdmKERjf
This chat went amazingly! We managed to reach 4th most trending twitter topic in the UK, and ever since the #MedStudentCovid hashtag has been picked up internationally by medical students.
To all UK #medstudents not in final year.— Prof Colin R Melville ?#stayhome #savelives (@drcolinm) March 29, 2020
Please get advice from your #medschool about volunteering. Great to do but need to protect your progression through studies too, even though placements likely cancelled. #MedStudentCovid @BecomingaDr
One of the main things raised by medical students was the desire the get involved with projects outside of the clinical setting. I have also found myself looking for something to do except write my dissertation!
Below I’ve included the brilliant graphics created by the Becoming a Doctor team outlining each of the projects.
If you want to get involved and to learn more about the projects, head over to their website.
