The Healthcare Experience

The Healthcare Experience

NHS Tayside and DYWPK are delighted to be able to offer this immersive learning experience to S4, S5 and S6 pupils who are possibly considering a career in a health or social care profession.

NHS Tayside and the University of Dundee are working together to offer pupils the opportunity to take part in an exciting one day experience. This experience will allow the pupils to get involved in simulated activities alongside a wide range of professionals.

The days involves two main sessions:

1. The pupils working in a simulated ward; caring for patients, assessing their needs and abilities and taking part in ward discussions regarding their treatment plan.
2. The pupils will take part in three short experiences trying some skills required in acute and community based settings.

During the experience pupils will meet and work alongside staff from:

• Medicine
• Nursing
• Occupational Therapy
• Pharmacy
• Physiotherapy
• Social work
• Speech and Language Therapy
