University Hospitals, Bristol can offer work experience for school students who are interested in a career in the NHS.
Please note that any work experience requests must be sent from the school or college of the student who wishes to participate. Unfortunately we are unable to accept any requests direct from students.

Some suggested learning outcomes for the simulation centre

  1. Understand the role of BMSC
  2. Participate in working in a changing environment.
  3. Gain experience working alongside clerical, medical and nursing staff.
  4. Observe the different approaches that BMSC and other teaching staff use when facilitating courses.
  5. Observe how the Human Patient Simulator is operated and maintained.
  6. Spend time with the centre manager/facilitator assisting with the setting up, staging and the running of simulations.
  7. Discuss with the centre manager how the equipment is maintained.
  8. At the end of the week, discuss with your facilitator the different approaches to teaching and learning that you have seen.
  9. Once you have visited the ward, note down any differences between the medical and nursing staff that you have seen between ward and BMSC (to discuss on your final day with your facilitator)
