Aspiring Medics Visit Southend University Hospital

Aspiring Medics Visit Southend University Hospital

A group of Lower Sixth students from Westcliff High School for Boys, were invited to a Careers in Medicine seminar at Southend University Hospital (SUH). They were joined by students from other local schools, in a safe and socially distanced environment.

The pupils heard presentations from Junior Doctors, Consultants and Surgeons, who all passed on their advice, gained from their years of experience within the medical sector. The information shared was invaluable to the students, who all found the session informative and helpful. The event increased their enthusiasm to work within the medical field and highlighted opportunities they had not previously considered. Thanks to everyone involved at SUH for organising such an inspirational seminar.
