Medicine: Not just about Medics.
Wednesday 14 December 2022

The subject of Medicine interests many students, however they won't all become doctors. Teams of scientists, engineers and mathematicians work alongside medical doctors, helping them to understand the spread of disease, discover better treatments and cures, and develop technology to aid more accurate diagnosis and treatment.

Medicine – Not Just About Medics events provide more information about how STEM degrees can link to the field of Medicine, and why STEM is important for medical advancement. Students will get involved in hands-on practicals, from subjects like Chemistry, Physics, Food Science, Engineering, Health and Biosciences.

For further information please have a look at the 'Not Medics' page on our website here 

These events are open to pupils in Years 9, 10 and 11 and interested in studying science at A-Level.  They're designed for those who have an interest in Medicine, but want to explore other medically related STEM degrees and career prospects.

Please note – bookings are available to be made for a maximum of 10 students plus 2 staff. This event is free of charge, however attendees will need to bring their own packed lunches.

Please apply to take part here

The closing date for applications is Sunday 13 November 2022
