Calling all Medical Professionals – Please Can You Help?

Medical School Interview Practice Session on Wednesday 17th January 4 – 7 pm

Our Medical Society has been extremely well attended by our aspiring medical students since the introduction of the Society last year. We have received great support from our OA community and a sincere thank you to everyone who has returned to the School to give thought provoking and insightful talks about the role of a doctor, vet or the commercial side of medicine. The talks will continue on an ongoing basis.

On January 17th, we are planning an Interview Practice Session for our students who are starting to interview for their university places and we would very much appreciate the support of any parents too. We plan to follow the multiple mini interview structure below.

The session will start at 4 pm and if you can help for the whole or part of the session then please contact Alison Cox by the end of term 15th December. It would also be useful if you would advise of any particular area of expertise within the structure below.

Thank you.

Professor Winston Lecture tonight Wed 28th at 7.30 pm.

We are very much looking forward to Professor Winton’s Lecture this evening entitled ‘Meddling with Life?’

Some of our students are asking today if they are able to attend the lecture this evening and so to confirm, all parents have been contacted who had their son’s name down to attend and in turn we have asked parents to re-clarify the number of tickets they require as this is a very over-subscribed event.

If you are in any doubt regarding the number of seats allocated to you or if you are unsure if you are on the list then please contact the Development Office on 01296 480276 or 01296 480277.

If you are attending this evening, please aim to arrive promptly at 7.20 – 7.25pm for a  7.30 pm start. We are also selling some of the Professor’s books at the entrance to the Lecture Theatre which the Professor has kindly agreed to sign after the lecture. £10 each and cash or cheques only.

Finally, our students do not have to wear school uniform with the exception of our Prefects and Senior Students who are helping this evening.

Thank you.
