Medical networking

Sixth form pupils hear about careers in medicine
1 Oct 2022
Events

College sixth-formers interested in studying medicine were given valuable insights into medical careers during an ES networking event on Saturday 1 October.

Dr Nigel Sargant (Reeves 1990-95) is a consultant haemotologist for Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, and he started off by giving a detailed illustrated talk on his career in haemotology.

He was followed by Mr David Macafee (Pennell 1989-93), speaking via video link, who gave an interesting perspective on a day in the life of a surgeon, based on his experiences as a consultant at South Tees Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.

The session concluded with a talk from Dr Rob Wicks (Powell 1974-79) about the breadth of experience necessary to work in general practice; Rob was a GP in Eastbourne and was also the College doctor for a number of years.

We are grateful to all the speakers for giving their time in providing some useful advice and enlightment to the pupils.
