Aspiring Medical Pupils Network with Professors and Surgeons

This year’s Medical Society Dinner welcomed guest speaker Professor Lord McColl of Dulwich, CBE in conversation with Dr Harry Brünjes, former Chair of the Governing Body. The evening, which was held on 13 November in The Athenaeum Club, started with a drinks reception and buffet dinner, followed by the lecture. Lancing’s Head of Medics, Mrs Becky Webber and Head of Science and Physics, Dr Giles Preston, accompanied 15 pupils from the V, LVI and UVI Forms. The pupils chatted confidently to OLs and parents about their interest in pursuing a career in medicine.

Lord McColl gave a warm-hearted and candid account of his life as a surgeon, interspersed with humorous tales of his experiences throughout the years. Pupils were able to ask questions, hear about the various specialisms within the sector and network with the other guests.
