DYW – Developing Scotland’s Young Workforce


Medicine & Medical Sciences Conference

Thursday 22nd March 2018

Polwarth Auditorium

Foresterhill Health Campus, Aberdeen


The University of Aberdeen would like to invite your S5 pupils interested in studying Medicine or Medical Sciences to the above conference on Thursday 22nd March 2018. The event will take place in the Polwarth Auditorium at Foresterhill Health Campus.


Timings of the event will be confirmed shortly but we expect the event to run from 10am-3.30pm.


Pupils will have the opportunity of hearing from Doctors working across hospital and community settings. Staff from the School of Medicine, Medical Sciences and Nutrition will also be on hand to answer any queries. Current Medical students at Aberdeen will give pupils and insight as to what it is really like to study Medicine.


How to book

Places must be booked in advance and we anticipate an enthusiastic response from schools. Please email a list of pupil’s names and accompanying teacher(s) who will be attending to Anna Johnston at anna.johnston@abdn.ac.uk by Friday 9th March. You will receive a confirmation email and joining instructions closer to the event.


We strongly recommend that pupils are accompanied by a teacher from your school who must stay for the duration of the event and we expect schools to deal with parental consents. However if this is not possible, we require confirmed approval from your school and parents/ guardians that pupils can attend the event independently.
