Other teaching opportunities

Teaching at the University

Many of our teaching sessions involve small group work. We always welcome interest from GPs interested in tutoring on our Consultation Skills teaching


Students have end of year OSCEs (Objective structured clinical examinations) in years 4 and 5 which include primary care stations. We advertise examiner sessions well in advance and provide free examiner training. Examining attracts a fee. You can find information about examiner sessions and training opportunities in our teaching newsletter and twitter feeds.

Student Choice Projects (Formerly SSCs)

Undertaking a student choice project with a medical student is a great way of sharing an area of special interest in medicine with someone else, or sharing a research/quality improvement project with a student. See our student choice pages for more information.

Would you like to help guide and nurture the next generation of doctors?

For over a decade, we have had an active network of mentors to nurture the professional and career development of undergraduate medical students within Bristol University. 

This scheme is intended to achieve the following: 

Give recognition to the professional status of students from year 1 as trainee doctors and part of the health care professions. In their final year, students undertake a year-long assistantship in preparation for becoming a Foundation Doctor 

  • Help students establish their professional identity, creating a roadmap for medical training throughout the 5 years of the undergraduate curriculum, and linking with the Foundation Programme and further post-graduate training. 
  • Encourage an ongoing student generated, record of academic achievements and provide feedbackand 
  • Guide their professional and career decision making. 
  • This record is designed to inform the reference to support professional progress, F1 applications etc.
