Healthcare Science Week
Healthcare scientists are at the cutting edge of medicine,
researching and developing new treatments and equipment which cover
a broad range of up to 52 professions.
Our Healthcare science staff are today celebrating their
part in National Healthcare Science and Engineering Week, by
hosting an event for local schools. Children will have
the chance to join in our interactive sessions and bite size
lecture, meet our enthusiastic healthcare scientists
from across all disciplines, and ask many questions.
We have healthcare scientists in the following categories:
- Life sciences involve the study of illness and
disease, genetics and embryology.
- Physiological sciences are all about the study
of the body and organs.
Clinical engineering and physical sciences focus on
developing techniques, diagnosis and monitoring
The pupils will have the chance to hear talks on stem cell
revolution, genetics, and antimatter machines.
Healthcare Science Week is a fantastic way to inform the
locality about the work of the healthcare
science community and the vital role they play
in patient care and treatment.
