Visiting South Cheshire College – 26/06/14


Hey! I’m Amber Estep and for the past 3 years I have been volunteering for Fastbleep Schools, which is aimed at widening access to medicine. Today I was able to do this at my former college, South Cheshire college, where I spent an incredible two years of my life. If it hadn’t been for Fastbleep coming to the college when I was a student there, I don’t think I’d have had the confidence or know-how to pursue medicine.

During this visit I teamed up with our Fastbleep director, Akhil Lakhani, to teach suturing, anatomy, CPR and how to take blood pressure. We had the pleasure of working with two year 12 biology students – both from the same class I had once been in! Usually we teach much larger sessions than this but being able to carry out the session 1:1 was very beneficial and the students had every opportunity to ask us anything you can think of, not just about medical school but our lives outside of it.

We were featured in an article on the South Cheshire College website which you can read by clicking here.

Akhil said,

“We hope that the sessions have raised awareness amongst Biology students about the route they can take to get into medicine. We enjoyed the session and there were several students we met who were capable of following their dreams of becoming a doctor and getting into medical school. Hopefully, for those that were unsure, we have planted a seed that will foster a love of caring for patients using the knowledge of science. We also hope to provide students with a link to medical students who have successfully been through the medical school UCAS application process.”


Hope to see you soon, SCC!
