Peermedics was founded in September of 2013 as a student led peer-to-peer teaching initiative based in Liverpool. Developed by two medical students for the benefit of 1st and 2nd years, Peermedics provides a platform for 4th and 5th year medical students to deliver regular structured teaching for the benefit of both teacher and students alike.
As well as regular teaching sessions, Peermedics also holds mock clinical exams twice a year prior to exams.
Following on from its first year, Peermedics is now embedded into the University of Liverpool Graduate Medical curriculum and in the summer of 2014, Peermedics received funding from Jisc, an organisation which supports UK education and research (www.jisc.ac.uk).
With this grant, Peermedics plans to expand its teaching base beyond Liverpool and implement its teaching programme within other universities across the UK. We are also using the funding to develop this website further, to create a learning environment for medical students and also to create a hub for all of our teachers to upload their teaching resources.
