The children from all six schools in Stonehouse, Plymouth really enjoyed meeting the young medical students, finding out more about their jobs and trying out their equipment.
Pupils had the opportunity to ask medics questions about their jobs during the events and also tried their hand at taking each other’s blood pressure, listening to heartbeats using a stethoscope and resuscitating Anne, a dummy, using CPR.
Julie Monk, widening participation officer at Plymouth University’s Peninsula Schools of Medicine and Dentistry, said: “We were delighted to have been invited by Millfields Inspired to be part of the Who’s in Health activity.
“It was a great opportunity for our student ambassadors to engage with Year 5 children at local primary schools.
“What the children learnt in the activity sessions makes a connection with the jobs they might one day pursue.”
