Academic year 2013/2014


WHAT IS STUDY AID?

StudyAid was created last year by Kjetil, Sondre and Lars, now 6th/6yr, and is designed to be a student-teaching-students initiative. As students ourselves, we thought we could contribute and try to improve education at UJ. Last year we mainly focused on the new 1st year program and taught anatomy and physiology. In addition, we held one microbiology seminar for 3rd/6th. We try to focus on giving interactive seminars and providing the most relevant information in a clinically important context.
