Operating Theatre Live

Get your stethoscopes at the ready for the unique interactive medical experience returning to Cornwall for one day only – Operating Theatre Live.

This year’s programme is bigger and better than ever before with a host of new workshops, never yet presented in the county. The one-day workshop will take place at Truro High School for Girls and will give delegates the chance to follow an in-depth medical course, set in a ‘mobile operating theatre’.

The workshop is open to all those from Year 10 – Year 13. It provides the perfect broad base for those studying sciences at GCSE and is also ideal for those A Level students considering applying for university to study medicine, dentistry, health courses or the biosciences.

Do you have what it takes to be an emergency doctor? The brand-new Trauma and Amputation component of the course is an optional session that can be booked in addition to the main event and is a popular part of the programme. The extension workshop will run from 5-8pm. A meal will be provided between the two sessions.
