An aspiring doctor and an aspiring Physiotherapist from Year 13 attended an event at Queens hosted by The British Medical Association (BMA) who claim they want to encourage more students from non-selective schools in Northern Ireland to become doctors.

As part of the initiative, more than 100 pupils met doctors and medical students at a BMA event in Belfast to learn more about the path to a medical career and were mentored by doctors and medical students.

Pupils from 14 post-primary schools attended the event.  The pupils also took part in practical medical demonstrations such as measuring blood pressure, using a defibrilator and using a dermascope and microscope.
