Truro High to host the UK’s first Operating Theatre Live surgical summer camp

13 January 2020

A Cornish all-girls school will this summer be partnering with the team behind the award-winning ‘Operating Theatre Live’ to host its first week-long course complete with ambulances set to make an appearance and heads, brain, lungs and more being dissected.

The brand-new Future Medics Live course is set to take place at Truro High School for Girls from Monday 3 to Friday 7 August 2020.

The worldwide premiere of this unique medical educational experience is being brought to students as part of our bespoke programme for Aspiring Medics has been developed in partnership with the team behind the UK’s leading dissection based surgical school workshop, ‘Operating Theatre Live’.

Operating Theatre Live currently conducts day-long workshops at a select number of UK schools, which include Eton and Monmouth School for Boys, and has received plaudits from the likes of the NHS which described it as “the best academic medical experience on offer”.

Aimed at those aged 14-19 who are considering a career in nursing, healthcare medicine, dentistry or veterinary science, the week-long THS course is the first of its kind to be led by human anatomist Samuel Piri and his team of nationally-acclaimed clinical experts.

Brand-new interactive workshops will range from a simulated 999 road traffic emergency including ambulances and on-scene paramedics to a mock autopsy on the world’s only semi-synthetic human cadaver as well as a series of targeted tutorials on medical, dental, veterinary and healthcare university applications.
