Monthly Lecture Series (MLS)– February Lecture 'When Grannies Attack: Age, Ageing and Health Related Problems in Later Life' (Year 7-13) 


For our February lecture we're joined by Dr Tom Levett, Senior Lecturer in Medicine and Frailty at Brighton and Sussex Medical School and an Honorary Consultant in Elderly Medicine at the Royal Sussex County Hospital Brighton. Older adults are the fastest growing part of our population and the bulk of patients cared for by healthcare professionals and, with this in mind, Dr Levett's talk will focus on age, ageing and health related problems in the NHS.


The MLS is designed for secondary school/college students and provides the unique opportunity for students to learn more about different aspects of medicine, career pathways, and how to get into medicine.  


Dr Tom Levett's lecture will be taking place on Wednesday 3rd February using Zoom video conferencing between 18:30 - 19:30. Tickets are now live on our events page. As usual, the event is free, however tickets must be booked in advance and can be done so here. I have attached a flyer too if you would like to advertise this on your school/college's channels.


Online Talks Restarting – For Students (Year 10 +)/Teachers/Parents/Carers:   


After a break in December and January the BSMS Admissions and Outreach Team are back with our series of online talks designed for secondary schools students from Year 10 upwards. The talks will explore a variety of topics related to life at medical school, the NHS and getting into medicine. These talks are starting again in February and have had a really fantastic uptake with students both in the UK and worldwide. All the talks are free to attend, but spaces are limited. Tickets can be booked on our events page here.
