Suture The Future Medical Opportunity

Suture The Future Medical Opportunity

Students from Year 10 with an interest in studying medicine took part in a careers event on Wednesday 8th November where they had the chance to learn and practice basic first aid skills and suturing.  At the first aid station, students practiced giving CPR on models, calling for help and assessing the danger.  They then got the chance to observe and then practice suturing (a form of stitches) using real medical equipment.

Bow students were shown how to do each of the activities by volunteers from Queen Mary University who are all currently studying to become Doctors. It was really great to see our students immersed in the activities, asking thoughtful questions and finding out more about getting into medicine.

The students said that they loved how interactive and fun the session was and that they enjoyed the opportunity to ask questions of people currently studying in the area that they are hoping to get into. The visitors spoke really highly of all of our students and have offered to run similar sessions for other year groups.  We look forward to welcoming them back to Bow to work with some more of our students in the future.
