Aberdeen Medical Students get a taste of GP role

A new project has been developed to allow first-year medical student in Scotland to watch GP consultation for the first time.
Previously, trainee doctors had to wait up to four years to experience the consultation room.
GP Live was developed by Aberdeen University and uses streaming software to enter the consultation room.
Researchers hope it will encourage more students to join general practice and help ease a recruitment crisis.

Forget Cambridge vs. Oxford....see the Aberdeen Boat Race this Saturday!

The Aberdeen Boat Race returns to the River Dee this March, where the University of Aberdeen will face reigning champions Robert Gordon University in an intense battle of skill and determination.
Last year, Robert Gordon University clinched the title for the fifth year in a row in the closest race in the event’s history – with just a quarter of a length in it and both teams smashing the course record.
The race, now in its 22nd year, is sponsored by Aberdeen Asset Management and will see the two crews rowing a gruelling 3.5km course through the city – from the Bridge of Dee to Aberdeen Boat Club.
