Year 11 Students attend Medical Careers Day

On March 9th we were lucky enough to be awarded places to attend the annual Medical Careers Day at Keele University, amongst 250 students from 50 schools and academies from around the UK. It was a real eye-opener into the medical world and how competitive it is.

We began the day with informative talks on how to choose and apply for medical school, the different possible pathways within a medical career and what to expect when you get there.  We know now the significant impact GCSE’s have on our future careers!

After lunch we were able to take part in interactive laboratory sessions, with lots of time to ask questions. The speakers throughout the day came from different branches of medicine and included Professor Robert Kirby, Dean of Royal Stoke University Hospital and Professor Andrew Hassell, Head of the School of Medicine at Keele University.
