A General Practitioner and former Rydal Penrhos pupil will be part of a special event for pupils looking to pursue a career in medicine.
Dr Catherine Anna Lamb, who attended Penrhos College, has been named one of a number of special guest speakers at the North Wales GP Schools Session, which will be held at Venue Cymru in Llandudno on Thursday, September 21.
After leaving Rydal Penrhos Dr Lamb studied Pharmacology and the University of Liverpool, and gained first class honours before moving on to medicine at the same further education establishment.
The event is being run by a local GP Dr Dylan Parry and have been organised for Year 11 and 12 pupils to promote, and highlight the benefits of a career as a General Practitioner, while also helping GPs and pupils identify the potential opportunities and perceived barriers when considering a career in General Practice.
Dr Lamb will be speaking about her experiences qualifying as a doctor, and there will also be a chance to take part in a question and answer session following the talk.
Other topics that will be up for discussion include career opportunities as a GP, the journey from school to employment, medical school opportunities, the requirements needed for your medical school application, personal statement and some of the things you will experience as a medical student during your time at university.
