Book Guidance on Reflective Writing

Reflective wriitng is something that some students (and tutors) find more difficult than others.  Guidance that is helpful for one individual may not be helpful to all so I have included links to a number of sources and documents so you can choose what is most helpful for you.


Please send me any links that you find useful and I will include them here.

Year 2

Medicine in Society

Medicine in Society is a community-based course for students in years one and two of the MBBS curriculum. The global aims of the course are to introduce students to patients and the patients' experience of health and ill-health over the course of their lives.

In year two, students attend for a full day once a fortnight, for 11 days (Tuesday) throughout the year, but with breaks for holidays and selected study components (SSCs or electives). 

Students are placed with a clinical team in a hospital or community setting, the teams work in a variety of fields including mental health, care of the elderly, palliative care, chronic disease management, child health and rehabilitation. They will be assessed by you at the end of the year on a case presentation, a project report and their attendance and completion of a logbook. In addition to attending on each placement day students must complete the six activities in their logbook and have them signed off during the year.

Folder Preparing to meet/shadow a health-care professional

On your MedSoc 2 placements you will have opportunities to spend time with many different members of the healthcare team.  In order to get the most from this we would like you to use the attached proforma attached to think about what you already know about that person's role, what you hope to learn about and from them, how you should explain your role and your goals.  You should use the proforma before every planned encounter with a HCP and on one occasion should submit an example of your preparation to QM+ before Dec 2nd.  Please note you only need to submit one example but it should relate to someone who is not a doctor .

File Resource for students observing an MDT meeting

As part of their MedSoc 2 placement students will see some/many MDT meetings

Dr Kate Crossland at St Joseph's Hospice has put together a proforma for her students to use when observing.  The completed proforma may be helpful when debrifeing afterwards.
