A more advanced and in depth workshop including loads of data collection, analysis & diagnosis. Perfect for G&T students as well as BTEC and A-Level courses. Activities include measuring blood vessel diameter & circumferences with an ultrasound, lung volumes, respiration rates, taking fake blood and recording an ECG!

What’s in the workshop

The Mini Medics Day is perfect for high achievers, Gifted & Talented, aspiring medics, or even A-Level and BTEC courses in Biology & Applied Science.

The workshop can be customised to your school day, depending on your requirements with options for:

– 2 hour workshops on repeat (2-3 times in a day)

– half day (repeated twice) or even…

– A full day workshop

We can see 50 or so students in this session as we have longer to work with them, so they all get plenty of time to take part and collect their data.

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!

Who is it for and how does it work?

The workshop can be tailored for any year group from years 4,5 & 6 in primary, all the way through to year 13 in secondary. We can visit for the day and repeat the workshops 4-6 times over the day. Each workshop is 50-70 minutes long and all we need is a good sized classroom with access to tables and a few plug sockets. The workshop has a 15-20 minute intro from the MM team before the students get the rest of the session to experience using the kit! It is all hands on!

Every student receives a 4 page workbook where they can record results and check off activities. Each activity has 2-4 different careers linked to them. The careers are colour coded too, so they can see which grades they need at GCSE! Students can also pick up a mini poster that gives an overview of 13 different sectors in the NHS!

What our teachers say…

Both students and staff really enjoyed the day. Quang brought along lots of medical equipment for them to try and it has certainly inspired a few to think about a medical career. Really engaging and good value.

Tina Belcher

Amazing interactive experience for the students, it got them really engaged and helped some decide on a possible future career. The staff were amazing and so enthusiastic! Will definitely be booking again.

Michelle Hackett

Brilliant hands on session. Our students were so enganged by the equipment and medical Mavericks staff that we couldn’t get them to leave (even though the event was held after school on a Friday!)
