My group did. We ran a 1/2, then 2/3, 3/4, and a 4/5 to support them all way up to the second VIA. In clinical years, we even live-streamed our sessions to those who were in rural areas but were originally part of our group.Do study groups exist between year levels in 3/4/5? Or is it just year 1s and 2s
Our group was very tight though, not like some of the groups with 200+ people now, we had about 20-30 people who turned up every week in person. I'll have to say that I think only one other group ran the distance like we did, it's pretty rare. We were the only group (ever... I think) to live-stream to rural members.
My advice would be to stay away from those huge groups with 200+ people, it becomes more of "reading slides" than actually teaching. Go to a group that teaches, not just posts up notes/slides/memes.
Official VESPA refers to VESPA case nights. Previously, peer-to-peer learning groups (ie. these 1/2 groups) were called VESPAs. Case nights, I feel, are of limited value.What's the difference between Vespa and PSP?
They're often highly attended by pre-clinical students who don't know anything (not a fault of their own! just inexperienced) so often important clinical content isn't really discussed... And this is often the only interesting part! Thus I think they should be restricted to clinical students, but I'm not running the show (un)fortunately hahaha.
I went to a couple and then stayed away, rather do something else with my time.
