Discovery Days: Medicine

Discovery Days: Medicine

Become a doctor for the day! Pupils will have the opportunity to engage in hands-on activities alongside medical school students and doctors, to learn about the human body but also gain valuable insights into the rewarding field of healthcare.

Introducing the concept of university and helping children to think about their futures, our outreach officers will run sessions in school, both before and after the Discovery Day.

In partnership with the School of Medicine.
