So You Want To Be A Doctor – Schools Outreach

More than 100 S4 pupils from schools including Buckie High School, Elgin High School, Harlaw Academy and Peterhead Academy take part in an annual event taking place across campus every September in order to learn how to best prepare for applying to medicine.

Pupils in S4 take part in an interactive anatomical clinical case, using CT and MRI scans, and other anatomical learning aids to discover the internal organisation of the human body and how it may be altered in disease or trauma. The session culminates in an interactive 3D case, and students being able to visualise organs in real time by trying their skills with a real ultrasound machine.
