Hi, welcome to the Classroom Medics Blog which is written by me, Tom Warrender. I started Classroom Medics 3 years ago and visit schools around the UK to inspire the next generation of medics. After honing my Human Physiology (that’s a cooler version of Biology) and Medical Toxicology (that’s drug overdoses!) skills at the University of Wolverhampton and Cardiff University, the nursing students at Birmingham City University had the joy of my lectures which included dressing up as pirates with swords and doing physiology art to the music Tony Hart used to use in Hart Beat. I dont believe in normal teaching!
This blog is all about everything and anything medical. There will be blogs for students and teachers that can be used as resources for study and lesson plans as well as accompanying video blogs. If you are not a student or teacher fear not! There will always be something for anyone interested in how the body works. From Holby City (that’s a British version of ER where George Clooney is replaced by Nigel from Eastenders) to medical research to translating medical jargon from TV shows to spotting physiology and pharmacology in movies. I guarantee you will be able to amaze friends with your knowledge of all things medical.
So when will you be releasing blogs i hear you ask? Well, every Wednesday evening we will release a new blog with occasional mini blogs if there is something in the news such as a celebrity with a disease. The best way to get the blog is to sign up in the box in the corner. If you have any requests or have seen anything medical on TV or in a movie and want it explained let me know and we will write a blog for you. If you are a teacher, take a look at the workshops link to see what we can bring to you school to help you deliver science, health & social care, PSHE, careers and PE enrichment lessons.
To find your workshop visit our main site www.classroommedics.co.uk where you can watch videos of the activities we bring into schools and book on line!
