Academic Support

Medicine and Dentistry are difficult subjects to study, you have vast amounts of information to learn and the changing nature of the course in comparison to A-Levels can be a challenge. BLSA has a number of organisations devoted to support it's students academically to ensure that we can produce the best doctors and dentists possible. 

These societies are independently student run but their efforts are co-ordinated by a BLSA Officer to ensure a high level of collaboration and cooperation. This provides the maximum benefit for students - the aim is to provide comprehensive support and avoid repeated efforts. 


PRECLINICAL

MEDICAL EDUCATION AND SUPPORT SOCIETY (MESS)
Academic support for lecture material. Weekly evening lectures led by older students covering all the topics in the curriculum.

CLINICAL LEARNING AND SKILLS SOCIETY (CLASS)
Clinical skills support to prepare students for the OSCE examinations, these will be key when treating patients so it is good to get them right early on.

PEER ASSISTED LEARNING SOCIETY (PALS)
There are limited places for students to have one-to-one tutorial sessions with experienced senior students. You can apply if you fail an ICA - applications are entirely confidential.


CLINICAL

PEER ASSISTED LEARNING SOCIETY (PALS)
Small tutorial based teaching for students in the clinical years, meet up regularly with experienced senior students who can take you through clinical medicine. All students are able to join a PALS tutorial in the clinical years, unlike the preclinical years where spaces are limited.

CLINICAL LEARNING AND SKILLS SOCIETY (CLASS)
Crash courses on each module to help students get a good grounding on the material during their revision process. Make sure that you've covered all the major topics by attending these lectures. They also provide OSCE training before the summer exams.

DENTAL

PEER ASSISTED SUPPORT SOCIETY (PASS)
Academic support for Dental students is encapsulated within a single, over-arching society. It runs evening lectures to help students in their early years to grasp the underlying physiology and sciences. The Dental Society (DentSoc) supports this Society in its teaching.
