Discover Medicine Workshop

A group of Year 8 students recently took part in a Discover Medicine workshop.

The hour-long session was delivered by second year medical students from Newcastle University Medical School.

It involved learning about the recovery position, resuscitation and measuring heart rates and blood pressure.

The Year 8s also had the opportunity to discuss university life and medicine as a future career.

We are grateful to the medical students for coming along to run the workshop, particularly as they had just finished their exams.
