Third Year Student Bags Royal Society of Medicine Prize

Third Year Student Bags Royal Society of Medicine Prize
2018-06-21

I developed a website at the end of first year covering the topic of heart murmurs with the aim of integrating different aspects of teaching. The site covers some of the background anatomy/physiology, pathophysiology of common murmurs, and audio files of the murmurs. The website also contains sections on investigations, management, clinical skills and single best answer quizzes.

I entered my work into the running for the Sidney Linton Prize for Medical Education in Cardiology offered by the Royal Society of Medicine which received a number of entries from around the UK. The award criteria was to have made a novel e-resource for students and as such could take many formats such as a video, podcast or in my case a website.

Recently, I was invited to  London to present my work as one of three shortlisted candidates and was ultimately successful securing first place.

The website is available online for all students to use at heartmurmurs.wix.com/heartmurmurs/ and I’m hopeful it will be a useful resource for medical and PA students.
