Four pupils from Year 11 have successfully earned places on a Healthcare Summer School at University College London Hospital.
The pupils participated in a healthcare e-mentoring scheme run by the Mullany Fund earlier this year. The Mullany Fund is a charity that supports young people realise their full potential and ambitions in the life sciences. Following on from the e-mentoring, participants were able to apply for a limited number of fully-funded places on the UCLH summer school. All four applicants from BVS were successful in obtaining a place.
The four pupils will be travelling to London in July for a week-long residential programme. They will be introduced to a number of medical careers, learn some core medical skills and participate in medical simulation scenarios whilst based in state-of-the-art medical training facilities. This will undoubtedly be an invaluable experience for the pupils and will support them in their future plans for medical careers.
The school offers its’ warmest congratulations to these pupils for their success.
The e-mentoring scheme will be running again in September for pupils who are currently in Year 10. Information will be delivered in a future assembly for those who are interested.
