“Studying a BSc (Hons) Urgent and Emergency care was the best intercalation decision I could have made and I have already seen the positive effect it has had on my practise in week one of year five! Not only has it been a fantastic opportunity to improve clinical skills on the ward, which are essential for foundation years, but it has really improved my confidence in managing real life patients.
The opportunity to gain a broader perspective of medicine by working in a pre-hospital setting and with healthcare workers across the spectrum has allowed me to understand how to work in a multi-disciplinary team, and the importance of this. The taught modules in Plymouth were invaluable, encouraging open debate and critical thinking around subjects – much more dynamic than learning from a textbook. On top of this, I have made some lifelong friendships with my fellow course mates from all over the country.”
