BMedSci student wins Best Oral Presentation


Third year medical student Wan Teng Lee presented work from her recent BMedSci* honours year project at the prestigious Neonatal Society spring meeting held at the Royal Society for Medicine in London.  Her project presented exciting findings on potential traumatic brain injury observed in premature infants transferred between hospitals by ambulance. This work is linked with Dr Lara Shipley, PhD clinical fellow, and Dr Ian Bloor, Research Officer, under the supervision of Dr Don Sharkey, Associate Professor of Neonatal Medicine from the Division of Child Health, Obstetrics and Gynaecology.

Wan Teng won a prize for Best Oral presentation which is fantastic when many senior clinical trainees presented their work.

*The BMedSci degree is a key part of the undergraduate medical course at the University of Nottingham. It provides all our students with a strong scientific backgrounding for moving onto the clinical phases of the course. The programme also develops critical thinking to prepare students for the challenges of clinical work in their future medical career.
