Pupils shine at GP conference

A Level students Abigail Collis-Smith and Kareina Walters attended a medical conference with a difference over the Christmas holidays. working alongside GP trainers, GPs and international educationalists at the ‘Lifting the Lid on Research and Evaluation’ conference based at the Severn NHS School of Primary Care in Bristol. 


Abigail and Kareina had to work in multi-disciplinary medical teams and solve a range of problems involving designing service evaluations and surveys, qualitative research and also received top tips from Professor Ed Peile (Professor Emeritus of Medical Education at Warwick University) on how to get published and influence people.  

Abigail said “this course was both interesting and inspiring and gave us the opportunity to learn more about medicine through working with different people in varied medical careers. It enabled us to understand different aspects of health such as the relationship between architecture and medicine and how this may impact on a patient’s health.  We were both very grateful for this unique opportunity.”

Anthony Curtis, Head of Careers, said that it was fantastic to see how Stonar pupils rose to the challenge of these intensive medical education workshops and both Abigail and Kareina were excellent ambassadors for Stonar.  The GP trainers said that it was refreshing to see how creative and innovative A-level students could be when given demanding problem solving scenarios.  I would also like to thank the School of Primary Care for enabling this unique opportunity for Stonar pupils and future programmes are now being planned.
