For a number of years we have been regularly holding weekend and multi-day interest courses for medical students from around the UK at our Mid Wales venue. Over a two and a half day course, the students are encouraged to think outside of the hospital and get opportunities to practice advanced skills and see how casualty care occurs when the patient is not in a warm bed.

They get to take control of serious incidents, practise advanced and improvised techniques and deal with the challenges of the outdoor world. This is a fantastic opportunity to get a head start on casualty care and various procedures and open your eyes to one of the exciting areas of modern medicine and entertain you.
