Medics Drinks 2015

On Thursday, 14 May 2015, as part of the OE Careers Network, the Development & OEA Office hosted a drinks reception for Old Edwardians and parents involved in the medical profession and current pupils. 

This event provided OEs and parents the opportunity to share their knowledge and experience with current pupils interested in pursuing a similar career. This year's guest speaker was Professor Mary Jane Platt, Director of Admissions and Teaching at Norwich Medical School.
