Skills Day 3 was held on the 18th of August and hosted 100 enthusiastic medical and allied health TROHPIQ members. The skills day team ran a morning and afternoon session where students rotated through five 45 minute stations. A passionate group of doctors, midwives and senior medical students tutored the student attendees in valuable clinical skills. The suturing and airway management stations were a great opportunity for students to refine their basic skills. The popular Intraosseous access station was back, with two new stations also introduced: Neonatal Resuscitation and Catheterisation. Overall the skills day provided pre-clinical students with a wonderful introduction to clinical skills. Students engaged with our snapchat competition and sent in some creative shots of them learning skills. Thank you to our wonderful tutor volunteers for giving up their time and to our sponsors: Teleflex, Co-Op bookshop and MIPS.
Congratulations to Belinda Burgess, Grace Boyd and Patrice Brennan for running three sell-out skills day events, equipping students with skills they will need for their future hospital placements.
