At d’Overbroeck’s International School, we encourage our students to follow their passions from the beginning of their studies with us.
Some of our students are aspiring to become doctors, so we provide them with the academic resources and information necessary to help them on their path to success.
With this in mind, during the first month of school, we organised a Mini Medics workshop held by Medical Mavericks, a British educational institution dedicated to bringing students closer to the medical world.
The workshop was held by two medics and gave our students the opportunity to learn about different careers in medicine and experience with some real-life medical equipment.
Our students spent the afternoon learning how to do the following:
- Check their temperature, heartbeat, and blood pressure
- Be a surgeon and suture a (plastic!) arm and give an injection
- Experience what an old person feels like by wearing an ‘old person’ suit
- Try key-hole surgery
The workshop was enjoyed by all, with some students commenting afterwards that they now want to think again about their future careers!
