Biomedical Engineering



This on-demand teaching session is relevant to medical professionals and is aimed at helping them learn maths and problem-solving skills. It will cover topics such as fractions, algebra, graphing, integrals, and GCE A-Level revision. There will also be a test at the end to assess progress. Additionally, attendees will learn about a "happiness algorithm" and how to make sure they get the internship they want. Join this session to learn how to hone your medical skills and problem-solving abilities.

MedED is delighted to announce the Year 3 BSc Fair, taking place on Friday 17th February at 6pm!

There will be a short introductory talk on choosing your BSc followed by a drop in breakout room Q&A. There will be representatives from every BSc to answer any questions you have!

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Ria Varma (Year 4 Coordinator)

My favorite thing okay, so we've got a question what's my favorite thing. I think it's the maths um in. In general, I think in terms of the other bs cs, it's very like it's it's very science based, It's very like read the paper and then like critique it based, whereas like bio engines more like okay well, you've given a problem, you've got to solve the problem um and it is a lot of problem solving things and there is like a right answer um. And you're kind of looking at quite cool things. In general, yeah I think I completely agree with that and uh sorry for the background noise, but I think also like we have a bit of critical analysis as well and a bit of reading papers as well, so we have something called journal club in first term where we have to do that, but I think I agree with jan, it that most of it is just and that's what's fun about it because it's like we haven't done that since a levels or Gcse, so the mass is pretty interesting what I'm thinking is we could, I could share like what my project is because we're like designing wherever uh yeah that's pretty cool, so I'm going to see if I can find like the video, yeah any questions just bang it in the chat because um If you want to like see some of like the lecture notes, if you want to see like some of the problem sheets that we've been given um just go ahead and just ask the question uh very uh how much of it um so that the the induction course is, it's split into mass and programming um So what they do in terms of the mass, it's it's quite the mass is more intense than the programming essentially so your talk. Um It's mostly just Gcse revision um not gcse sorry a level revision, um So you go over things like you start off with fractions and then you go onto like algebra um like graphing and then you go onto like integral and more complicated things. It's honestly, I did it like I went, I was on holiday most this summer. I literally, it wasn't really like that much of a um it wasn't that much of a commitment, I'm not gonna lie. Um They do they do give you test so you do have to do it, so. There's like a test at the end of the induction course, you do have to do it. If you don't do well, it's not like assess, it's not like it doesn't contribute to your grade, but it's you need to do it essentially. Um It's just so that they can see that it's like mini, yes. It's like several many tests, but the you can do them in your own time and uh it's it's pretty chill really in my opinion to. I was, I was on holiday the whole of the summer, yeah it's not it's not that much and if anything, it's quite interesting like you kind of just relearning a level amount. I think John has asked do you have to write anything um No, I mean in terms of like the BSE allocations, it's really I think they've told you about this sort of like happiness algorithm. It's not it doesn't really create any happiness as far as I'm concerned like no one's really um happy. I think I'll agree with that. Actually yeah some people. I mean yeah it's it's really just random you need to just if you want to do it if you if you don't put it first, you're never going to get it. Um. If I was definitely in terms of yeah, I would I would I think so that is personally yeah. If you don't, if you don't put it first, you're never going to get it, you're um you just need to be like yeah and then even if you do, it also know a lot of people who've never got it and like if you put it fast, it's still not guaranteed because it's quite like. I think someone asked about they have a summer internship and would the course be possible, and I think I would agree with that. I think would be fine honestly. I think most of the times when I did it was either at, like in the evenings or on the weekends, so what do you have to say about.
