Operating Theatre Live comes to Malton SchoolJanet Burrows
Operating Theatre Live is bringing its human interactive dissection show to Malton School on 13 July. Aimed at pupils aged 14-19 who might be considering a career in medicine, anatomy, pathology or veterinary science, this unique opportunity will enable students to take on the role of a trauma doctor bringing the systems of the human body alive through dissections. This incredible, immersive operating theatre experience will give participants the opportunity to dissect real specimens led by human anatomist Samuel Piri and his team of clinicians.
Through a variety of workshops, students will work systematically through a complete dissection of the human body, being taught a variety of important clinical skills including interpreting X-rays and linking symptoms to clinical diagnosis. There will be the opportunity to ask questions, handle anatomical samples and even undertake some dissection work. With a post-mortem style experience, students will look at disease and pathology, working on real specimens using real surgeons’ tools, discovering the intricate structures and how they function to keep us alive. Students will also learn about communication skills at interviews as well receive starter materials for the UKCAT and BMAT.
Samuel Piri, Anatomist, Teacher and Programme Director says of the day, “I personally write the academic content and produce all the activities myself. I and my team guarantee you a breath-taking, unforgettable trip through the human body like never before. Each student will leave stretched and challenged having made measurable progress against the science specification.”
