Award-winning Operating Theatre Live is bringing its interactive dissection show to Blackburn Central High School on Friday 25th October 2019.
Fresh from BBC’s Dragons’ Den, Operating Theatre Live is the UK’s only touring surgical experience offering an academically rigorous educational experience matched to UK exam specifications.
During this unique opportunity, students will take on the role of trauma doctors and bring the systems of the human body alive through dissections.
This incredible, immersive operating theatre experience will give children the opportunity to dissect real specimens led by human anatomist Samuel Piri and his team of clinicians. The event challenges students to explore careers in medicine and healthcare in a mission to raise engagement in STEM subjects and take students on an experience into healthcare and human anatomy like never before.
Students will work systematically through a complete dissection of the human body. They will be taught a variety of important clinical skills including interpreting X-rays and linking symptoms to clinical diagnosis.
With a post-mortem style experience, students will look at disease and pathology, working on real specimens using real surgeons’ tools. They will discover the intricate structures and how they function to keep us alive.
Who can attend?
The event delivers in-depth content aimed at those aged 14-19 or on ‘Access courses’. For those interested in studying anatomy, medicine or pathology at the undergraduate level, this event is a great experience.
