Health Workshop Roadshow

On Thursday this week, we were host to two student ambassadors from St.George’s, University of London.

The purpose of the Roadshow is to raise young people’s aspirations and increase their awareness of a range of educational and career opportunities in medicine and healthcare. Two workshops were run by the student ambassadors that bought a range of healthcare professions to life.

Students took part in:

Prosthetics: Students discussed the medical and social implications of prostheses and got to make their own prosthetic finger!

Paramedic Science: Students learned about the role of a paramedic in dealing with medical emergencies and know what to do in terms of basic life support and wound dressing.

The Year 9 Health and Social Care group thoroughly enjoyed the experience and the Roadshows linked directly to identifying the role of professionals in different scenarios as well as why individuals may have unusual prostheses to help them feel more confident and improve their self esteem.
