12:00 pm12:00

MD4 Pre-internship Masterclasses

Topics: 
- Fluid Assessment/Management
- Skills in patient handover/referral
- Managing MET calls
- Prescribing medications especially analgesia
- General tips and advice on life as an intern (covering shifts, preparation for ward rounds, tax, salary packages etc)

For each of the sessions, there is capacity to host every MD4 at each of the clinical schools if they are interested!. 

The idea is to have it run tutorial style, where students will be split into equal groups with an intern who can cover the topics and do freestyle Q&A. 

Food will also be provided. 

Each of the sessions are also open to all MD4 students regardless of which clinical school they are currently at however each of the 3 sessions will be the same across all campuses, so they can choose to attend any of the 3 they prefer.

SIGNUPS on the Google form BELOW: Deadline for this form will be Friday 14th September.

After the awful events at Princes Park recently, UMMSS has decided to dedicate its upcoming Scrub Run to raise funds for Safe Steps: a family violence resource centre.

Check out the good work that Safe Steps does here: https://www.safesteps.org.au/

So come down to Princes Park, wear your scrub tops, and run or walk 5km in solidarity against violence towards women. Tickets are $5 for UMMSS members and $7 for family and friends, and all funds will be passed on to Safe Steps. Friends and family are welcome to attend, but only UMMSS members will receive a scrub top for participating. 

Participation will also count towards the UMMSS Clinical School Cup, with points for:
- # of participants at each site
- The site with the greatest % of attendees
