Nov 13th / Last Wednesday eight medical students from Kings College London visited Loreto to deliver an interactive session called ‘Bench to Bedside’ for our AS level scientists.

The presentation and activities used a one-patient scenario to demonstrate the part each medical team member plays in the diagnosis and recovery of a patient.

The aim was to show Y12 Chemistry and Biology students the varied career options available in health sciences, and the variety of study courses they could undertake.

The presentation began with a brief overview of the Faculty of Life Sciences and Medicine at Kings, and then led on to the patient scenario provided by the eight medical students.

Our students found the whole session very informative and it certainly reinforced their own ambitions to follow careers in medicine.  We are very grateful to the Kings College Team for the insight they provided.
