Jess Observes Brain Surgery on Work Experience!
St Ambrose Barlow Student Jess was extremely lucky to have the opportunity to take part in a work experience placement on the Neurosurgery ward at Salford Royal, where she was even able to observe brain surgery!
The work experience, organised by the college, saw Jessica Spending four days with the department. Jess got to spend time in CT/MRI scanning, in Physio, on the wards, and in surgery where she was able to scrub up and observe the brain surgery.
Jess, who is studying BTEC Health and Social Care, alongside Biology and Psychology A Levels at St Ambrose Sixth Form, undertook the experience to help her decide which area of medicine/nursing she would like to pursue in the future. This was an amazing opportunity as it is rare for sixth form students to get a placement in a hospital, never mind to get so close up!
