Oral Maxillofacial Careers Talk to students
In our ongoing commitment to work with the local community our Consultant Darryl Coombes gave a talk this week to students at Bennett Memorial Diocesan School in Tunbridge Wells. The Year 11 and 6th Form Students were given an insight into the training required and what experience they would need before becoming a qualified Consultant.
The talk then went on to show the different types of surgery with the students getting the opportunity to ask questions about each case. Mr Coombes was able to show the life changing affects that can be achieved through surgery but also gave the students a realistic insight into the long hours and pressures of the job.
The talk was very positively received by the students many of which wanted a career in the medical profession.
