Congratulations and big thanks to all 38 students who completed our ‘Music and the Future Doctor’ module this year!

We provide an elective module and Brighton and Sussex Medical School, which includes essential learning for future doctors in using a hospital musicians’ approach to building trust and rapport with patients and families. This ultimately leads to better clinical care.

We use examples from our decade of working with people in hospitals to explore the change when access to live, participatory music is included in hospital care.

We have, as ever, learned a lot from your discussions and presentations. Good luck with your ongoing studies!

Thank you, Janet Lee and Kamal Patel who helped us create and assess this course & Bela Emerson for leading the course.
