longitudinal placements


New Member

Hi, I'd really like to know about which medical schools are using longitudinal placements in their curricula... For example, some medical schools send students to a family with a newborn baby and follow them for the first year of their lives (visiting them every couple of months). Does your medical school do this? Which patients do you follow and for how long? And in which year of study? I'd really appreciate any help with this! Thank you!

Imperial run a follow my footsteps course and i think it's over a period of 2 years, where you follow a mother and her baby - it starts in second year if i remember correctly and it's definitely a very good scheme to mention if you're applying!
