Medicine Weekend

The Debate Chamber Medicine Weekend provides students aged 15-18 with an exciting hands-on introduction to the world of medicine, offering a valuable insight into the reality of becoming a doctor. Led by a team of expert tutors, the Medicine Weekend will cover a range of topics including patient histories, radiology, haematology and cardiology. Students will also learn how to suture or stitch a wound and will have the opportunity to practice their skills using authentic suture kits.

A combination of lectures, role-play activities, group discussions and practical exercises will ensure that students have plenty of opportunity to benefit from the expertise of their tutor, and apply their knowledge in a friendly and inclusive setting. Small class sizes of between 14-16 students will allow for each session to be tailored to the individual interests and needs of the students.

This course is particularly relevant to students who are considering applying for Medicine at university, or who are interested in related disciplines such as Biology, Psychology or Chemistry. This style of learning is excellent preparation for university, and should provide students with a real sense of what it is like to study as an undergraduate.

Please note that this course covers the same material as the Medicine Summer School – Part 1, so students should not register for both events.
