Medics in the Making?

Medics in the Making - Lower Sixth MVD students supporting Year 10 students from Oakwood and The Priory School

Many thanks to the 39 Lower Sixth MVD students, who are helping to run 5 week ‘Medics, Vets and Dentists’ taster programmes, for Year 10 students from our partner schools starting with Oakwood and The Priory School. 

The programme, which covers: motivation and suitability to become a Doctor, Vet or Dentist, systems of the human body in health and disease including anatomy and dissection and health campaigns and ethics – is designed to help inspire Year 10 students at our partner schools, to pursue a career in Medicine or related areas. 

Liz Sanders, Head of the College’s MVD Pathway explained, “The College runs two pathways: One for aspiring ‘Medics, Vets and Dentists’ and one for other ‘Careers in Health’, including nursing, midwifery, paramedic science and physiotherapy. Many students feel that pursuing these routes are out of reach for them, and it is our collective role to help them see otherwise. I’m grateful to our students for lending their support – with each of them helping at, at least one session.” 

11 students in the Upper Sixth are currently on the College’s MVD Programme several already holding offers.
