What’s in the workshop
More like what isn’t! Your students will be able to take blood from a fake arm, record their own ECG, try key hole surgery, see inside their body with an ultrasound machine, take a picture of the inside of their eye and much more.
Every students gets a their own medical observation sheet to fill in during the workshop as well as a print out of their ECG.
They can also check out our Careers Wall that outlines dozens of different career paths as well as salaries and training routes!
What careers does the workshop cover?
We know the most common answer to ‘what careers do you know about in the NHS?’ comes with the answer: doctor, nurse, physio, dentist, midwife… or as well call it the Holy Quintet!
So, in the workshop students can find out about these BUT we focus on the lesser known careers such as biomedical science, healthcare science, medical engineering, medical physics, physiology, bioinformatics and many more.
That isn’t the best part. We show students that many of the careers are accessible with levels 9-4 at GCSE too!
