STEM World Medicine 2017 is back in its third year, full of exciting activities, excursions and workshops to immerse yourself into life as a doctor on the front line. You will meet doctors, sports physicians, autopsy specialists and an array of others (patients, actors, psychologists) during a jam-packed week.
Sessions range from learning to take blood, piecing together autopsies as part of a Murder Mystery as well as meeting and clerking patients. There are many prizes to be won as we play Medical Monopoly – understanding how healthcare is delivered locally and globally.
A particular favourite this year is bound to be the Anatomy through Make Up, where a Hollywood specialist will help recreate anatomy and prossection to identify organs affected by disease.
Subject to clearance, we will also be visiting some of Leicestershire’s best football clubs to find out about Sports Science and performance medicine for athletes. We will explore Digital Wearables and how to analyse vital signs (heart rate, blood pressure) as part of stroke rehabilitation.
