    Students explore the world of medicine with Medical Mavericks

    March 16th 2017

    Wigan & Leigh College’s budding medics received an inspirational workshop from Medical Mavericks, a UK based careers organisation who inspire the next generation of health professionals.

    Students studying on the College’s A Level Professional Honours Programme gained hands on experience using real medical equipment with the help of health experts during their Professional Development Day. 

    The day enabled the College’s budding medics with an opportunity to use some of the most advanced technology and testing used in hospitals across the UK.

    During the workshop students were provided with the chance to carry out artificial keyhole surgery, as well as the opportunity to record and print an ECG test and take blood.

    The innovative workshop, which took place at the College’s multi-million-pound Parsons Walk Centre, provided the students studying on the College’s A Level Professional Honours Programme in Applied Medical and Health Professional with an insight into the range of careers available within medicine.

    Tanya Evans, Head of Teaching and Academic Studies at Wigan & Leigh College says, “During the College’s Professional Development Day we strive to provide A Level students with unique and valuable opportunities whether that be through work placements or workshops. We know that universities are seeking more than qualifications, it’s now about the experiences, opportunities and the mentoring students have received. Medical school is highly competitive and introducing the students to workshops such as Medical Mavericks ensures we are equipping our A Level learners for their university studies as well employment.”
