Broughton High School S1 event @ Broughton High School
Nov 13 all-day

You Can Be A Doctor is heading to Broughton High School on 13/11/19 to encourage their pupils to consider medicine as a career. We will be piloting a new event aimed at younger years to inspire people from as early as possible. ASPIRES research from King’s College London highlights that people’s views of what they can and can’t achieve become fixed earlier than you might think so giving students some early exposure to medicine is crucial.

Come along to help us inspire S1 pupils in Broughton High and take part in an exciting workshop based around a disarticulated skeleton and basic life support. Email volunteer@youcanbeadoctor.co.uk
