The award-winning team behind Operating Theatre Live is returning to Truro High School this September to bring Cornwall’s students the next generation of live event for aspiring medics and healthcare practitioners – MED-SOC.

The day-long, interactive course is set to take place on Sunday 5 September from 9am-4.30pm. The event, which will offer students the chance to experience clinical careers first hand, is being hosted by Truro High’s Aspiring Medics Programme but is open to students from across the region.

Reviewed by the NHS as “the best medical preparation course on offer”, MED-SOC offers a hands-on intensively academic insight into medical careers. The event has also received high praise from Cambridge University which said that “every student should learn anatomy like this.”

The event is delivered by the award-winning human anatomist Samuel Piri who has featured on the BBC, The Discovery Channel & Medicplayer. At the event, Sam and his team will provide the opportunity for students to participate in the dissection of real organ specimens including a head & brain, lungs & heart as well as a digestive tract showcasing the stomach, liver, gall bladder, pancreas & intestines. The day is rigorously academic with students receiving an award-winning insight into how the body works and the challenges faced by the next generation of medical professionals.

All of the content is carefully matched to the main GCSE, A Level & BTEC specifications and is relevant to the study students are undertaking in the classroom. The event operates in such a way that it appeals to students considering both medicine, dentistry & veterinary science as well as those considering: nursing, midwifery, paramedic science, occupational therapy, pharmacology, biomedical science and sports sciences.
