On Tuesday 13th November, Dr Chris Chase from Hull Royal Biomedical Pathology department visited Hull College to give a Biomedical careers talk to our Science Level 3 and Access students.
Chris managed to squeeze a wealth of information into an hour long session, covering topics from career routes through to the nitty gritty of what a day in the blood services department is really like.
Students found the session extremely interesting and took the opportunity to gain some important careers advice. After the talk, Chris explained to the science department that he really enjoyed the visit and would love to come back again with his colleague who can talk about automated lab systems, which would benefit the students as this is part of one of their compulsory units.
This Biomedical talk followed on from a visit to Hull Royal on the 7th November, when Hull College students were invited to take part in a ‘living autopsy’ outreach session hosted by Dr Chris Chase and demonstrated by Dr Suzy Lishman.
Relevantly timed during National Pathology Week, the session held at Hull Royal’s Pathology Department gave students an up close and personal insight into the procedure of an autopsy.
Both sessions demonstrate the College’s commitment to building links with local businesses and employers, to give students the opportunity to experience real working environments and learn about the different routes they can take towards their dream career.
