This academic year marks the beginning of the clinical years for the first MD cohort of the Medical School.  Placements of students took place in late August at the two training hospitals dedicated to the MD programme: Limassol General Hospital in Cyprus and Barnsley Hospital in the UK.

MD Programme Director Dr Constantina Constantinou and MD Year 5 Lead Dr Aristomenis Tourvas visited both sites in July in order to prepare for the delivery of Year 5 curriculum.  During the visits, several meetings and training sessions were held with Academic and Clinical Leads, as well as with administrators at both hospitals. Further visits and training sessions will follow throughout this academic year.
