Medical Students Work Placements

The University of Warwick and Newbridge House already have close links, collaborating on a research project and on a digital initiative to train teachers in eating disorders awareness.

Newbridge already offers four to six week placements for medical students from St George’s, University of London and the University of Sheffield, but this will place Newbridge as an option within the psychiatry training of medical students from a local premier university.

Medical students from the University of Warwick will spend a day at Newbridge, participate in a multi-disciplinary team and conduct a detailed patient assessment. They will observe the Newbridge treatment model and develop a deeper understanding of the multi-factorial complexity of eating disorders. They will be guided by Dr Christina Pourgourides, consultant psychiatrist at Newbridge House, who is their designated clinical tutor for the day.

Professor Hubert Lacey, Medical Director of Newbridge House said: “We have always believed, as a specialist unit, we have a broad responsibility to support training in and awareness of eating disorders. So this was a programme we were very pleased to support and develop with the University of Warwick, where we already have close links through our research collaboration and work to support teachers.”
