During the pandemic, there was a requirement to provide additional synchronous live tutorials that would engage students whilst encouraging them to problem-solve and use their imagination. We also wanted memorable topics where students would actively participate and apply what they had learned in classes. Given the popularity of Game of Thrones and use of poisons running throughout the TV series, we used different storylines to get the students to work out how fictional poisons/drugs might affect nervous system function. Informal student feedback indicates this form of tutorial using ‘pop culture’ references is a desirable method of teaching advanced medical sciences.
