Event description

Description

Are you interested in medicine and surgery?

'Neurotheatre - Simulated Brain Surgery!' is back due to popular demand! Edinburgh Medical School will be opening up the historic Anatomy Lecture Theatre for an immersive, captivating re-enactment of brain surgery, featuring state-of-the-art surgical technology, alongside a diverse cast of neurosurgeons, A&E doctors, paramedics and medical students!




'Neurotheatre – Simulated Brain Surgery!'

Neurotheatre will offer audiences a glimpse at the neurosurgical treatment of a simulated patient following a road traffic accident. In an experience that promises to be as exciting as it is educational, members of the public will witness the work of emergency services before hearing a first-hand account of the effects of traumatic brain injury by a patient ambassador from Edinburgh Headway Group.




Interactive pop-up stalls

Prior to the performance, audience members will be given the opportunity to try their hand at suturing and emergency first-aid, while also learning about the cutting-edge technology and meticulous planning involved in rehabilitating patients following traumatic brain injury. There will also be an opportunity to meet the medical and surgical staff directly involved over light refreshments after the performance.




Programme for the evening:

1730: Doors to pop-up stalls open.

1815: Doors to Anatomy Lecture Theatre open.

1830-1930: 'Neurotheatre – Simulated Brain Surgery!'

1930: Refreshments.

Neurotheatre is a joint collaboration between Edinburgh Neuroscience, The University of Edinburgh Neurological Society and medical students at Edinburgh Medical School. Medical students will be on-hand and are more than happy to take questions relating to studying in Edinburgh.
