Would you like to help educate your future doctors?
Volunteer patients play a vital role in helping medical students learn. This role involves coming into the teaching centre to help with exams or teaching sessions. To take part you must be an outpatient not an inpatient and you will usually have a chronic condition.
If you agree to help it is usually for 4hrs at a time and occasionally for a whole day. Exams are run once a year at the end of February start of March. Teaching sessions are run throughout the year.
All patients are offered:
- Either taxi transport or a free parking permit
- Refreshments throughout the session
- A small thank you voucher

Discuss it with your consultant at your next appointment or contact the undergraduate team
