Last week we welcomed Medical Mavericks into school on for two separate days of workshops for Year 9 and 10.
The sessions took place to showcase the many alternative career ideas available in the NHS. The students enjoyed workshops including taking blood, using the ultrasound to see muscles and bones, taking blood pressure and testing the strength of their lungs. They performed ECG’s and printed their heart’s electrical activity. They also had chance to experience what it was like to perform keyhole surgery.
They used some state of the art infrared scanners to look at their veins and arteries and were given an insight into many unknown potential career pathways. The sessions were very enjoyable and all the students were highly engaged throughout…maybe we have some doctors and surgeons in the making!
