Medical Science Partnership Launched

Medical Science Partnership Launched

Launching an innovative ‘triangular’ project between Moreton, state schools and Universities, Keele University and Moreton ran the first ‘Aspiration Day’ this week for would-be medics. The day included keen Year 9 and 10 (Lower and Upper 4) scientists from Moreton and local secondary school, St. Martins.

Gordon Dent, Senior Lecturer in Pharmacology from Keele University Medical School explained: “We have worked with the Moreton Science staff to create practical experiments in the fitness suite which demonstrate how the cardio vascular system is influenced by exercise.  We also ran a workshop to help the students understand the variety of careers available to medics and what being a medical student involves.”

A second ‘Aspiration Day’ will be held in June.
