Medics in the making

It was action all day when ten students from the Academy had the opportunity to attend an all day interactive Medical/Healthcare event at Maidstone Hospital’s Academic Centre.  The students, who have all shown an interest in working in medical or healthcare related professions, had the opportunity to try out various medical procedures in the simulation suite.  They took blood samples, checked pulses, fitted medical drains and even attempted the tricky task of performing laparoscopic surgery!  The students also had the chance to speak to professionals first- hand about the various career areas they were particularly interested in and the most appropriate career progression routes. It was a really enjoyable day and will hopefully inspire the students to continue with pursuing their interest in working in medicine and related healthcare professions.
