The Post Mortem Course - 1st May 2021

This coming Saturday, the 1st May, from 12pm-4pm BST there’s a unique course for all students with an interest in medical careers.

The Post Mortem is an interactive recreated Post-Mortem course where students join our anatomist as we try to establish the cause of death of an individual using a semi-synthetic cadaver.

We’ll explain all the medical techniques and tests used to establish cause of death and then students join our live session at 2pm BST where we will cover everything they have just seen in more detail and ask any questions students may have about anatomy or applying to medical school.

The whole day is designed to provide some great online work experience that all students can use in their applications and interviews to healthcare careers and is suitable to all students from 14-19 with an interest in biology or medical careers.

To take part, students just need to visit here and we also have bursary places available too.

Students will receive a personalised certificate for this unique interactive course and it’s also available to watch anytime afterwards for 30 days, whenever suits them best should they not be able to make it on the day.
