I came to the St George’s programme in Cyprus because I heard that it offers many opportunities to get clinical practice early during the degree.
This year I have had the chance to learn directly from practicing physicians and to see numerous patients, who have helped me solidify the learning we do in the classroom. Each week we meet to discuss hypothetical patients, and then are given time to study their medical conditions.
The independent study we do is supported with great lectures given by the highly experienced teaching faculty. Afterwards, we continue by practicing our skills and learning how to incorporate the week’s learning into being a good, well-rounded physician.
