Medical Sciences Day

We have the opportunity for a group of up to 30 students from Year 12 or 13 to join us for a day of hands-on workshops run by current PhD students at Imperial College London. This event would be good for KS5 students interested in medicine/health sciences

This day will involve the following workshops:

We need to avoid misleading conclusions in health research!
Students will collect data on their own characteristics (e.g. height, shoe size, etc) and analyse the data using statistical software. Students will look at the difference between causation and association and explore the importance of this distinction in health research. 

How do we know that medicines work?
We all encounter medicines in our day-to-day lives. But how do scientists discover whether new medicines are safe and work? This activity will get students playing the role of medical study participants, investigators and external monitors



This event is for Key Stage Five (Years 12 and 13). Groups can be no larger than 30 students.

The timetable for the day will be as followed (exact timing tbc):

10.30 - 11.00   Introduction
11.00 - 12.15   Workshop 1
12.15 - 13.00   Lunch (packed lunches required)
13.00 - 14.15   Workshop 2
14.15 - 14.30   Q&A with Student Ambassador
14.30 - 15.00   Campus Tour
