Aspiring Loreto medics gave up part of their Easter holidays to improve their chances to achieve their dream of becoming a doctor. The dedicated students came into college to hear from medical students from the Fastbleep organisation about going into medicine and how to make a successful university application.
Activities included key skills such as suturing, resuscitation and taking blood pressure. The students were also taken through activities to name bones as well as finding out about different medical schools, course types and entry requirements. In addition the students were able to link up with Medicine Mentors through Fastbleep.
Chemistry teacher Mrs Winn said it was an action-packed and rewarding afternoon. "It was an inspiring and fun time for our students. One of them summed up the by saying: I have learned so much and you have really helped me to focus on what I need to be doing to plan my career."
Fastbleep is a non-profit social enterprise to promote learning, creativity and discovery for all in healthcare and life-sciences education. It was established in Manchester in 2010 by a partnership of medical and computer science students.
