The fantastic Medical Mavericks visited the College once again to offer an interactive workshop to first year medical science students and those interested in a career in healthcare.
Students had the opportunity to try out a range of medical equipment and practise how to take the basic statistics including heart rate and blood pressure. The Medical Mavericks also demonstrated how to use ultrasound imaging to look at muscles and bones and how to take photographs of the inside of the eye with an ophthalmoscope attached to an iPhone! Students even got to test their hand eye coordination on a device used by real surgeons to train to perform keyhole surgery.
Thanks to the Medical Mavericks who provided a fascinating and unique workshop which has certainly inspired our students to find out more about a career in the healthcare profession!
