Could you help us train tomorrow’s doctors?

If you are pregnant and your baby is due to arrive between November 2020 and early March 2021, you might be interested in taking part in a programme in which medical students from Cambridge University learn from pregnant people.

The conversations are completely confidential and your name will not be mentioned in any coursework. 

This part of the third-year students’ course is one of the most popular studies in their Preparing for Patients course. It enables them to gain a broader, more personal knowledge of how being pregnant and having a child affects you and your family. It helps them to connect their studies and lectures with real life. 

If you decide to take part, you will have a pair of students assigned to you. They will contact you via telephone, preferably three times during and once after your pregnancy. The students will want to speak to you about your pregnancy and the changes you are going through. 

If you are interested in hearing more about this opportunity and wish to contribute to the education of our future doctors, please email:
