We are pleased to announce that 6 of our mentees have been awarded places at the UCLH (University College of London Hospital) summer school this July! Four mentees attend Bishop Vaughan Catholic School who have written a great article about their success. The other two are from Gower College Swansea and Morriston Comprehensive school. Every application we received was great and we’d like to say a big well done to the 6 who were successful!
UCLH have kindly offered these 6 funded places to the Mullany Fund and for this we are very grateful. Thank you!
What’s in store
The week-long, residential summer school will consist of workshops, clinical simulations, lectures and 2 days of work experience in hospital departments. The students will receive a unique insight into the skills and personal qualities necessary for 21st century healthcare professions. Mentees who attended the course last year told us about their experiences with minimum access surgery equipment, lectures on teamwork and trips to medical museums. They said that it was the “experience of a lifetime”, “unforgettable” and “extremely helpful”. We can’t wait to hear how this year’s mentees get on!
