Comments from patients
“All the students I spoke with were very polite, respectful and
grateful for the patients’ perspective/contribution. An excellent
group of young people whom I felt had been well briefed about the
session.”
“Enjoyed the sessions immensely. Very polite students and they
were very easy to talk to. Good to feel I can ‘give something back’
for the help and treatment I have received.”
“I found the experience very enlightening and enjoyable. The
students were really considerate”

Comments from students
“Direct patient contact. I got to apply what was learned in
lectures/books to real life practise. Taught me how important it is
and how much a Dr can learn by listening carefully”.
“Meeting real patients instead of looking at textbook cases shows
the whole patient not just the symptoms. Meeting patients who were
so knowledgeable about their condition – learnt a lot!”
“Meeting patients, getting their opinions on their conditions and
seeing how the way doctors treat patients can have an impact on
their lives”.
