‘It’s a huge relief’: ‘The Irish need to get on with it’
Medical student entrepreneurs have been encouraged to start their own medical businesses and are getting the first look at a range of treatments that have been deemed to be life-saving.
A number of new products and treatments have been launched and it is hoped that these will prove to be a boon to the medical profession as the NHS faces a shortage of specialists.
Speaking at the launch of the new medical students initiative, Chief Executive of the Royal College of GPs Dr Michael O’Connell said the new initiative was “a massive relief” for the sector and would help provide the support that is needed.
“In the medical space, the idea of the student being a part of the workforce is something that is new,” he said.
“It is something I think is going to be really exciting and exciting for our sector in the future.”
I think it is going a long way to improving the quality of the medical workforce.
It will help to provide a better service to our patients.
“Dr O’Donnell said the project would enable young people to take on a role in medical innovation, but that they needed to know how to do it properly.”
We know that for patients, that the quality is important.
It is really important that we get our medical students to do what they do well, but also to have the experience of the work that they do as a healthcare professional.
“There are a number of things that are being looked at and they are looking at a lot of things, and there are some really exciting things coming along, but the thing that we are really excited about is we have some really cool things in the pipeline, that are going to really change the way we do things in terms of the care that we provide to patients,” he added.
The Royal College is currently working with an innovation hub to help medical students become the next generation of healthcare professionals.
The initiative is one of a number that are coming together to promote medical students’ involvement in the NHS.
Dr O”This is one example of the way in which we are working with universities and other partners to ensure that medical students have the skills that they need to create jobs for themselves and others in the medical industry,” he explained.
“Our vision is that this initiative will help build an economy in which medical students are involved in the healthcare workforce and help them to be successful in their careers.”
In the coming months, there will be new initiatives being launched across the UK to help students get into medical school, including a new initiative from the Royal Colleges of Health and Medicine and the Royal Medical College.
