Operating Theatre LIVE!
On Wednesday 8th November, 60 students took part in “Operating Theatre Live”. This was an incredible hands-on opportunity to dissect real anatomy and to learn about structures, such as the brain and lungs. This was particularly useful for many of us aspiring medics as it gave us a practical insight into the career of medicine. It was fascinating to see the intricacies of the human anatomy and how different parts of the body, from molecules to bones, interact to form a functional unit. We had the chance to observe and get hands-on with a digestive tract which very few people get the opportunity to do. It has given us a unique experience to talk about along with practical skills learnt during the session which can be used in A-level Biology and in our future careers.
Thank you to Mr Allport and the Biology department for arranging such an amazing experience for us.

Operating Theatre Live was a fantastic opportunity. They used medical terminology, told us lots of useful information about applying to university and treated us like real medical students by giving us an example situation which we had to solve in order to save our patient. I Crammond
Operating Theatre Live was an incredible experience. I strongly recommend those who are interested in the career path medicine to experience it. As well as being informative and helpful, it was certainly great fun to work with organs with a group. It was a very successful day. C Sarker
