Rural Medical Students Society encouraging high school students

Thursday 28 January 2016

On Thursday the 28th of January, fourteen Year 12 students from around Australia came to the ANU Medical School as part of the National Youth Science Forum (NYSF). The NYSF is a program targeted for students interested in pursuing careers in science and this particular group of students were eager to learn about what was involved in studying medicine. The Medical School's Rural Medical Society ran an afternoon session for the students in the Florey Building on Acton campus that involved practical stations including microscopy and anatomy. They also organised for paramedics from NSW and ACT Ambulance services to come along and involved students in practical demonstrations. The afternoon was finished off with a fun (if messy) session of plastering.
