Seminar at the Centre for Reviews and Dissemination

3rd School of Paediatrics Annual Meeting

16 November 2012, Hull

Dr Bob Phillips presented a masterclass on oncology and haematology.

Anita Mercer, a 5th Year HYMS medical student, who undertook a three-week special study module with Dr Bob Philips looking at the practical use of Evidence-based Medicine, won the Medical Student prize at the 3rd Yorkshire School of Paediatrics Conference in October 2012.

Anita split her Medical Student Elective period into two parts, working clinically for four weeks and using the latter four weeks to to examine the evidence behind a clinical dilemma that had arisen during her work in a large children’s hospital. The subsequent project was presented at the Paediatric Research Society’s Winter Meeting in November 2012.
