Due to the current Covid-19 situation, the decision has been made to cancel this event for the 2019 – 20 academic year.
Allied health professionals (AHP) are specialist medical professionals who assess, treat and diagnose patients across a range of specialisms. At Leeds, we offer accredited Healthcare Science courses for Audiology, Cardiac Physiology and Diagnostic Radiography.
Have you ever considered the physics and maths involved in producing an x-ray? Or about the chemistry involved in blood clotting and cardiac arrest? Or, the combination of physics and psychology involved in hearing and sound recognition?
Or even, what job you are going to apply your ‘A grade’ sports science A level to?
Whilst all three of our practical courses involve plenty of biology, there is much more to these healthcare professions than understanding human anatomy and physiology.
On our Taster Day you will get the opportunity to experience mini-lectures explaining all about Audiology, Cardiac Physiology and Radiography. You will participate in practical activities using our bespoke software, dummy patients, and clinical equipment.
Who is the event for?
This event is for Year 12 students studying at least one science subject (biology, chemistry, maths, physics, psychology) and are interested in practical healthcare careers.
