On Wednesday the final Future Medics Workshop for this year was led by the Exeter University Medical School. 34 Year 7-9 students from across Cornwall took part in the workshops, experiencing various practical and theory-based lessons covering medicine, dentistry and veterinary science. The first half of the session dealt with Basic Life Support (CPR) where the students were given the opportunity to work with Annie models. We were very impressed on how focused and passionate the students were, listening carefully to ensure their practice was correct and effective.
The second half of the workshop involved an interactive quiz covering topics from previous sessions, as well as general medicine questions. Caleb Owomoyela, a third year Medical student who helped to run the session said “Students have been very good, very attentive and picked up the information so quickly, they were able to practically apply everything we taught them which was really impressive.”
We are looking forward to continuing with the Future Medics workshops for the CSMS Scholars’ Community next year and are very grateful to the University of Exeter for their help.
The Cornwall Scholars’ Community is open to all students from Years 7-11 who have a keen interest in Maths and Science. There is an extensive programme of events and we also keep all the Scholars informed of upcoming opportunities in STEM.
