Students attending the Barts Medical School (Queen Mary University of London) in Gozo took part in a Health Day in Victoria on February 9.
The students were divided into groups and assigned specific tasks, including taking a brief medical history of each patient, measuring their blood pressure and blood glucose level, as well as conducting a two-lead ECG cardiac assessment.
The exercise was an extremely valuable experience for the students, who obtained further exposure in dealing with patients and providing basic medical care. It was a great way to gain confidence in building a patient-doctor rapport. Supervising the first and second year students were University senior lecturer Elizabeth Prabhakar and cardiologist Albert Fenech (fifth from right).
