Doctors, vets and dentists of the future were given a glimpse in to their future careers when a trio of junior doctors visited Bury College.
Students from The University of Manchester visited Bury College A Level Science learners to deliver workshops, discuss qualities needed for a career in medicine and future career opportunities. The workshop was delivered by Fastbleep, an organisation which gives people the skills to apply to medical school as well as an introduction to what it would be like to be a doctor.
During the visit, the junior doctors provided Bury College students with the knowledge they would need to successfully sit their BMAT and UKCAT tests. Students also enjoyed hands-on exercises including taking blood pressures, measuring reaction times and learning life-saving recovery positions.
Former The Elton High School pupil Amy Duckworth, who is studying A Level Biology, Chemistry and Maths, said of the experience, “Today has been really good and it was great to gain an understanding about the interview process to apply to medicine.”
Jared McSweeney, a third year medical student at The University of Manchester added, “The students were great, they asked some good questions and were engaged throughout the workshop.”
