This topical workshop from The Royal College of Pathologists gives sixth formers the chance to explore and discuss medical ethics with pathologists and scientists, allowing them to share their views on controversial topics such as organ donation and consent, the use of human tissue in research, consent for autopsies and medical research involving babies and children.
Led by consultant pathologist Professor Mark Wilkinson, this session is particularly valuable for students interested in medical or biomedical degrees.
These half-day workshops are aimed at A-level biology and chemistry students and introduces them to pathology and its ethical implications, allowing them to share their views on controversial topics such as organ donation, consent and the use of human tissue in research. Facilitated by pathologists, students will have the opportunity to consider different perspectives, which have been taken from a range of sources including the public, pathologists, other medical professionals, legislative bodies and the media, as well as to share their views on controversial topics.
