Information for Year 4 Medical Students

Welcome to the NHS Lothian Year 4 Undergraduate Medical Student pages . In this section, you will find information on who's who, the departments you will visit during year 4 placements, along with handy hints and tips relevant to your year group. Please check out the hospital pages for details on site information including food, parking, changing rooms and hospital maps.


White Boards

You may have noticed Medical Student whiteboards in the wards where you are on placement. These are for your use, in collaboration with the medical and nursing staff. The boards should be updated daily if you are on the ward and should include any task you need signed off, as well as general ward information and any learning/teaching opportunities. The Education Co-ordinators on each site have the cameras available to take your pictures for the boards. Their details can be found in the About Us section. Please see the attached examples:

WOW: Whiteboards on Wards Project

We sent out information last year regarding the white boards and our CTF's came to the wards to see how they were working for you. A survey will come out shortly to find out if they are working for you within the last placement area you were in.
