Genitourinary Medicine (GUM)

At UoE Medical School, GU Medicine teaching is provided within the confines of the O&G block. There is a variety of online GUM learning resources provided on the LEARN platform; including lectures, simulated patient consultation videos, interactive electronic patient cases and theory teaching notes. In addition, once a fortnight, on alternate Tuesday and Wednesday mornings, a GUM clinician will deliver a series of live interactive online tutorials. **To make maximum use of this teaching session, it is important that students review the related online teaching videos for the relevant tutorial topics, before attending the live tutorials.**
The availability and arrangement of the GUM/Sexual Health clinic sessions will vary, depending on the local site that students are attached to for their O&G block.
