Derby Cell

Nottingham Medical School in Derby is a satellite site of the main University that educates the Graduate Entry Medics (GEMs) in basic medical sciences before the BMedSci and GEM courses merge in CP1. Based at the Royal Derby Hospital, the Medical School houses around 200 GEMs as they complete their 9 module, PBL based, 18 month pre-clinical course.

The Derby cell is involved in arranging and running sessions in Derby predominantly focussed around the GEM course, events include; end of module revision sessions, basic suturing sessions, anatomy workshops, clinical skills revision sessions and clinical lectures. Although the lectures and sessions are aimed more towards the GEM students, we would welcome any BMedSci students who would like to attend any of our events.

The aim of the Derby cell is to help GEM students prepare for exams, and to equip them with knowledge and skills that will help them in the clinical phase of the course, and further into their medical careers.
