Aspiring doctors across various year groups at Rydal Penrhos got the chance to learn more about the avenues into the profession at a specially organised seminar.
The school welcomed a number of guests on Monday, September 25 for a Careers Session surrounding Medical studies, which was set-up with a view to improving applications and knowledge of what is demanded of students, while also providing tips and advice to enhance their whole experience on the topic.
During the session two junior doctors in their final year at the University of Cardiff spoke about the significant level of commitment that comes with this career path, the amount of work involved and their own personal experiences.
They are both on placement at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd in Bodelwyddan and also gave an account of how they have found life in the world of work at one of the busiest establishments in the country.
There was also the opportunity to hear from a senior figure responsible for training junior doctors, in addition to someone who had recently finished their studies and is employed in the North Wales area.
Deputy Head Tim Cashell, said: “Events like this are very worthwhile for any pupil that is aiming to pursue a career in medicine, and hearing first-hand accounts of just how much is required to succeed gives them plenty of food for thought.
“These additional learning methods related to a specific topic are something we have run for a number of years and it was great to see our younger pupils getting an early insight into what the future may hold for them if they show the right application.”
