Royal Marsden Medics Trip
The trip to the Royal Marsden was a valuable experience for pupils looking to study a science based degree or medicine at university. The radiology department, which involves cancer treatment and tumour control in general, was the focus of the visit. We learned about the origins and history of radiotherapy, treatment approaches and the delivery of care; this was followed by team building exercises. However, my favourite part of the trip came when we were shown the machinery and practical side to patient care. I am sure that every member of Medics Society would recommend this trip to any pupil. I certainly did not want to be a radiologist before the trip but I found the experience to be invaluable and I thoroughly enjoyed myself at the Royal Marsden Hospital.
