Student Grand Rounds (SGR) is a peer-led education initiative that aims to equip students with the knowledge and skills required for clinical practice. The SGR curriculum consists of peer-led sessions that aim to improve existing knowledge/skills, increase clinical exposure and build confidence.
To achieve this, SGR primarily focuses on the clinical examination: tutorials explore both the theoretical foundation behind clinical signs, as well as the use of proper technique. Other initiatives to improve students’ clinical skills include the promotion of early clinical contact and the teaching of useful frameworks. Tutorials are run by 6th year MBBS or MD3 students who have completed the Teaching On The Run (TOTR) course run by Professor Fiona Lake.
The SGR program closely mirrors and builds upon the MD curriculum:

  •  MD1 - Semester 1 (History taking)
    • History taking: promoting patient contact by facilitating history-taking from real patients
  • MD1 - Semester 2  and MD2 - Semester 1 (Systems teaching)
    • Teaching during each system block consists of two sets of tutorials:
      • Theory tutorials during each system block
      • Assessment tutorials
  • MD2 - Preparation to Practice
    • Disease-specific tutorials:
      • Exploring the presentation, pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment of common conditions that are important to clinical practice
      • Revision of clinical examination skills
  • MD2 - Semester 2 (Clinical practice)
    • Presentation tutorials:
      • Practicing, and receiving feedback on case presentations
