Healthcare scientists from Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust will be hosting stalls at three of our hospital sites for Healthcare Science week, to promote the work done by healthcare scientists within the Trust.

There will be a number of activities from different healthcare science specialisms at each stall including a chromosome matching game and a battery powered microscope showing human chromosomes. There will also be a number of paper based activities (such as guess the chocolate bar from the magnetic resonance image) and examples of equipment that is used in the different specialisms, such as a radiotherapy mask and photomultiplier tube and a miniature model of a linear accelerator to name a few!

The stalls will be manned by healthcare scientists who will explain their role and the impact of their work on the patient care pathway as well as to demonstrate some of the techniques carried out as part of their jobs.

What will I learn?

This event is aimed at students, staff and the general public. It will shed light on the valuable work that is done by healthcare scientists. Attendees will gain an insight into the range of different healthcare science specialisms, as well as an understanding of the important work that healthcare scientists do throughout the Trust and how this impacts patients.
