This full day event is for students from school years 10 - 13 who would like to find out more about what a career in medicine really means.

The day begins with informative talks about how to choose and apply for medical school, what to expect when you get there, and possible pathways within a medical career. Attendees will be able to watch a live operation and be given the opportunity to ask the surgeon any questions whilst performing the procedure.

After lunch the attendees take part in interactive hands-on sessions in Pathology, Radiology and Emergency Medicine. Attendees will be able to ask practicing clinicians questions, as well as take part in interactive SimWard sessions.
