SSC Poster Day 2011
MBBS1 & EMDP1A SSC Poster Day
Students undertake SSCs (Student Selected Components) throughout the medical programme. The SSC can take many forms but in the first year it involves a 2000 word essay coordinated with a poster presentation on a topic chosen by the student. This exercise takes place during the last three weeks of the year when students work in groups of 5 – 6 under the supervision of a member of staff. In 2010/11 some 356 students took part in the exercise and 62 posters were displayed for assessment on 10 June 2011.
Please take a moment to look at the accompanying slideshow and you will see how enjoyable the day was for all. Work produced was of a high standard with cash prizes being awarded for the 3 best posters and 5 best essays
