ANU Medical School – call for volunteers who have had a fall and are under treatment
The ANU Medical School is seeking members that have had a fall and are under treatment to help 2nd year medical students learn about this experience.  
 
The Clinical Skills Program of the ANU, based at the Canberra Hospital, is where medical students learn the skills to become good doctors.  People from the community join small (6 students) teaching sessions that relate to various medical conditions or stages of life.
 
The session coming up relating to falls is on Tuesday 1 October from 1.30pm to 3pm.
 
Club members that are interested in participating in the session can call Alastair Walters on 6244 3389 or email patient.recruitment@and.edu.au.  The ANU provides assistance getting to and from the venue, and volunteer participants receive a $30 Gift Voucher in appreciation.
 
Previous Program participants report enjoying the experience, it is an opportunity to make a constructive contribution to the training of future doctors and often find the sessions informative and rewarding. 
 
There are flyers in the club foyer with more information.
