It has been the most superb year for BSMS with excellent NSS results. BSMS have scored a near perfect 99% for overall satisfaction and are ranked first, the top spot for undergraduate medical degrees.
The quality of teaching was rated extremely highly, with 100% of participants agreeing that the course is intellectually stimulating and that they have been provided with opportunities to apply what they have learnt. In addition, 98% agreed that staff are good at explaining things and have made the subject interesting.
Dr Juliet Wright, Director of Undergraduate Teaching and Learning at BSMS, says: “I am delighted with our excellent results in the 2017 National Student Survey. Our staff are committed to providing students with an outstanding education in medicine, and the particularly high scores for teaching show we have been successful in achieving this. Results of 100% for the quality of the course and opportunities for students to apply what they have learnt, show that we are clearly preparing our students well for their future careers in the NHS.”
Students felt strongly that BSMS provided a positive learning environment, with 97% believing that they felt part of a community of staff and students, and had the right opportunities to work with other students. Access to course-specific resources was also very high at 99%, and sufficient advice and guidance in relation to the course and opportunities to provide feedback both received 98%.

Library and Knowledge Service staff presented at the 2016 BSUH Multidisciplinary Education Event on 13 September at Princess Royal Hospital. We offered sessions on anatomy.tv, KnowledgeShare to support evidence-based practice, going beyond Google, iris and online learning and better networking with Twitter. If you missed any of these, many are available as part of our teaching programme.
The conference was a great success, and you can see the coverage on Twitter with the hashtag #EdBSUH16. We look forward to participating in more interprofessional events.
