BACKGROUND: Students from disadvantaged socio-economic backgrounds are under-represented in UK medical schools. Many successful interventions are also highly labour-intensive for medical schools to implement. We describe and evaluate a sustainable, low-cost strategy that provides participants with targeted support, advice and experience. METHODS: Year-12 participants (29-74 annually) from schools in areas of deprivation were paired with e-mentors from the medical student population. Engagement with this programme was used as one criterion to select approximately 20 mentees per year for participation in a 1-week summer school. All participants were offered consultant-led work experience during their summer holiday and were guaranteed places at a student-led outreach conference, where they received specific help with the writing of personal statements and interview skills. Summer school participants were followed-up by questionnaire to establish their career plans. RESULTS: We have delivered this programme annually for 3 years. All respondents to follow-up applied to study medicine, dentistry or a related bioscience, to degree level. The success rate of these disadvantaged students was similar to that of the general population of UK applicants who applied to study medicine at this medical school. DISCUSSION: By collaboratively linking multiple activities organised by the Outreach Office, academic staff and medical students, an annual cohort of approximately 20 participants from non-traditional backgrounds was provided with sustained support in preparing for applying to medical school. The limited data available from follow-up suggests that this approach may have helped overcome the social disadvantage facing these applicants.

Smith SF, Roberts NJ, Partridge MR, 2007, Comparison of a web-based package with tutor-based methods of teaching respiratory medicine: subjective and objective evaluations., BMC Med Educ, Vol: 7

BACKGROUND: Respiratory disease is a major cause of morbidity and mortality not only in the United Kingdom, but globally. A good understanding of respiratory disease and its treatment is essential for all medical graduates. As a result of changes in clinical practice, patients with some common respiratory illnesses are less often admitted to hospital, restricting the experience available to undergraduate students. Combined with a potential shortage of clinical teachers, this means that new methods of teaching need to be developed and appraised. The aim of this study was to establish whether a web-based package on the diagnosis of respiratory disease would be as effective and as acceptable to final year medical students as tutor-led methods of teaching the same material. METHODS: 137 out of 315 final year undergraduate students in a single medical school volunteered to take part. Each received up to two hours of tutor-lead interactive, tutor-lead didactic or electronic, Web-based teaching on the accurate diagnosis and management of respiratory disease. Post teaching performance was assessed by multiple true/false questions and data interpretation exercises, whilst students' teaching preferences were assessed by questionnaire. RESULTS: Despite a high knowledge baseline before the study, there was a small, but statistically significant increase in knowledge score after all forms of teaching. Similarly, data interpretation skills improved in all groups, irrespective of teaching format, Although paradoxically most students expressed a preference for interactive tutor-lead teaching, spirometry interpretation in those receiving web-based teaching improved significantly more [p = 0.041] than in those in the interactive group. CONCLUSION: Web-based teaching is at least as good as other teaching formats, but we need to overcome students' reluctance to engage with this teaching method.

Annexin I (lipocortin 1) is abundant in lung secretions. Concentrations rise after oral glucocorticoid, but the effect of inhaled budesonide on annexin I release is unknown. Extracellular annexin I in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF) from 11 asthmatic patients was unaffected by inhaled budesonide (800 μg twice daily for 4 wk; mean after budesonide, 110 ng/mg albumin; after placebo, 107 ng/mg albumin). Rat alveolar macrophages (AMs) and alveolar epithelial type II (ATII) cells were cultured alone and with budesonide or dexamethasone. Mean basal concentrations of cellular (3.5 rig/106AMs; 4.4 ng/106ATII cells) and secreted (1.4 ng/106AMs; 1.8 ng/106ATII cells) annexin I were similar in AMs and ATII cells. Although budesonide subdued annexin I secretion from both cell types, dexamethasone stimulated annexin I release. Annexin I release from ATII cells peaked at 10-7M dexamethasone but at 10-3M dexamethasone from AMs. Thus, at low concentrations of dexamethasone, ATII cells probably contribute more annexin I to respiratory tract secretions than AMs, although at high concentrations, both cells probably contribute. The study demonstrates previously undescribed differences between glucocorticoids and between AMs and ATII cells with respect to annexin I regulation.
