The Special Study Module (SSM) in Adolescent Medicine casts a light on an often forgotten area in medicine, namely adolescents, who need special and vital supports. This module enables the students to engage directly with the adolescent community, to learn about the paediatric conditions facing this community, topics of general interest and how to deal and work with the issues facing this population.
