Michaela Casey and Gregor Stasko were the very fortunate participants in the UCC Prep for Med Day on Friday 31st of January. In the morning, students visited UCC’s state-of-the-art FLAME Anatomy Laboratory and learned Clinical Skills, such as CPR, first-hand from UCC’s lecturers and medical students. In the afternoon they visited CUH during which time they received talks from various Consultants and Surgeons, one being State Pathologist Dr. Margaret Bolster. However, the highlight of the day for both students was to observe a baby girl being born by cesarean section! This was a fantastic opportunity for Transition Year students to experience what life as a medical student is really like, well done to the students involved and a huge thanks to the School of Medicine at UCC for hosting such an incredible event.
