Hugh Baird College Medical Careers Event

A group of Year 10 perspective medics travelled to Hugh Baird College today to take part in a Medical Careers event. The day began with a talk from two students in their final year who described the pathway and the challenges of qualifying to be a Doctor. They also highlighted the different routes you could take and all the opportunities that the profession can provide. They then had 3 workshops:

1. CPR activity
2. A diagnostics role play
3. Medical ethics scenarios

The boys took a lot out of the event and enjoyed the opportunity at the end to ask questions to a practicing medic and a retired surgeon.

Overall, a productive and useful trip.
