During the October half term, eight TH students, from Lower 5 to Lower 6, were lucky enough to attend a two day course at Poole Hospital entitled 'An Introduction to Medicine - Secondary Care'. Some of the girls had also been to an additional session at Bournemouth University earlier in the week. They listened to talks such as 'What is a Doctor and what it is like to be a Doctor?'; they had introductions to Paediatrics and Surgery; group talks with current Junior Doctors and Medical students; chats to patients; a visit to the Simulation Suite, and they also had a grand tour of all of the hospital facilities.
They found the whole course a fascinating experience and gave great feedback to the course organisers. The participants were Harriet Jessop, Isla Parker, Leni Battistotti – Moore, Eleanor Pitman - L6; Evee Hendey and Martha Pawson - U5; Roha Kohlany and Sophia Fenwick - L5.
Thanks go to Miss Collins, Head of Careers, for organising the event.
