Alway and Year 9 pupils were this week treated to a range of fascinating interactive sessions as part of a showcase of medical careers.

Medical Maverick workshops inspire students to make informed decisions about their career & lifestyle choices.


Sessions included:

  • Use the ultrasound machine to see inside their body and measure the size of their blood vessels
  • See inside their eye with an iPhone retina scan
  • Record and print an ECG from their heart
  • Hear their pulse with a Doppler Probe!
  • Try key hole surgery on a training device used by surgeons
  • Use a real needle to take fake blood from an fake arm
  • Experience different eye diseases with the pathology goggles
  • Test hearing and reflexes
  • Take basic medical observation such as blood pressure, oxygen sats and temp
  • Suturing fake skin
  • Recording respiration rates


 A fantastic workshop showing our pupils the amazing opportunities and jobs that could be available to them. Thank you Medical Mavericks, lots to think about!
