Medicine Explorers

Did you know that your skin is your largest organ? Or, that your blood vessels laid end to end would wrap around the world more than ten times? Have you ever wondered about your body, how it heals and what it's really like to be a doctor? Take our amazing Medicine Explorers course and you'll get to test out how doctors find out what illness or injury a patient has and how patients get healed. You'll get the chance to examine your own 'patient', work out what's wrong, and start helping them to get better. Your teacher will guide you through the exciting world of medicine and show you how it has changed over time and what the future holds. You'll learn about your body, how amazing it is, and how doctors are the real superheroes...what sort of doctor will you become?
