Medical workshops for students aspiring to be doctors
College students hoping to become doctors took part in a special Medical Day along with pupils from local schools.
Held at Havering Sixth Form College, the Medical Day challenged the high-achieving students with workshops on Diagnostics, Emergency Resuscitation, Anatomy and Medical Ethics.
The day was organised by MCS Projects and the sessions were run by university students from Barts Hospital and UCL.
They also gave students a presentation on successful applications to Medical School and they answered questions on their lives as Medical students.
Schools taking part in the day included Emerson Park Academy, Campion, Harris Academy Rainham, Sacred Heart of Mary, Brentwood Ursuline and Mayfield School.
After the workshop sessions the students had a talk by Mr Aman Bhargava who is one of the leading consultant Laparoscopic Colorectal surgeons in London. He attended with trainee surgeon Nads Bedwani and they both spoke about their careers and the expectations of becoming a doctor.
Havering Sixth Form College students who took part are all members of our Medics Enrichment group. They were: Ingrid Uno Eninn, Nicky Ahadi, James Laker, Masooma Ali, Martha Ongolo and Charlene Kazibwe.
One student said: “I liked that it was taught by medical students who are still studying and I also liked all the interactive activities.”
Another said: “The event gave great insight into the daily life of a medical student and doctor with very useful information about a career in medicine. It has helped me decide my career path.”
