STUDENTS GET HANDS-ON IN DISSECTION WORKSHOP

26th November 2019

Students studying for science qualifications at City of Wolverhampton College donned surgical scrubs and got hands-on with all things anatomical in a live dissection workshop on Wednesday, 27 November.

A group of 50 students who are studying for science A Levels or BTEC diplomas in applied science took part in the immersive surgical session in a simulated operating theatre at the Paget Road campus.

The interactive event, run by Operating Theatre Live, will cover patient care and infection and the anatomy of the head, neck, thorax and abdomen, with students getting the chance to dissect a brain and spinal cord, trachea, heart and lungs, as well as observe a real sample of the digestive system.

Student Claire Smallwood, aged 25, who is studying for the Level 3 diploma in applied forensic science said: “The practical activities connected to the the biology side of the course and taking part in the event has given me a taster of what working in forensics will be like.”
