By Haider K, Year 12

Last month, a number of Sixth Form boys finished a six-week course of ‘mini medical school’ lectures organised by Newcastle University.

Lectures covered a range of current topics including the risks of liver disease and how to identify skin cancer, and were presented by leaders in the field. Practical sessions on medicine, bio-medicine, pharmacy, and psychology were also available.

Two sixth formers attended the medical practical session where they were introduced to several key surgical skills such as tying a surgical knot around a blood vessel to stop blood loss. In the biomedical sciences session, serial dilutions were practised and students gained expertise in using specialised lab equipment.
