In many ways, doctors are like superheroes. They often need to move faster than a speeding bullet to save a patient’s life, just like Superman. This is one amazing career where every second counts! Got a wannabe doctor on your hands in the family? Now’s their chance – and yours – to live life in the fast lane and spend a day in a doctor-sized pair of shoes: Mount Elizabeth Hospitals‘ Doctor For A Day (DFAD) is back from 15-17 June… and it promises to be more exciting than ever!
What’s it like to be a real doctor? Here’s your chance to find out…
Held at both Mount Elizabeth Hospital and Mount Elizabeth Novena Hospital, families will get thrown into the thick of the action in the Accident & Emergency (A&E) Department. This is role-play at its best, folks, but fear not: there won’t be any real surgery involved! Hands-on and interactive activities include getting the lowdown on real medical equipment (under adult supervision!), learning how to check for vital signs and getting a 101 on treatments you might need to use during the experience. If the last DFAD event is anything to go by, you’ll need to hold onto your hats for a fast-paced, exciting day that involves insight into life in the A&E!
Here to save the day…
This Doctor For A Day event also promises to be packed with more fun and medical-inspired activities than ever before. Set in an escape-room scenario, adults and children in teams of three or four will solve challenges such as identifying different parts of the human anatomy, and how to assess which A&E patients need help the quickest – invaluable life lessons we think! You’ll even learn how to check a patient’s vital signs, discover what kind of different treatments are available, and pick up plenty more medical inside info. You’ll need to bring along your lightning reflexes though – the faster you complete the task, the faster you’ll get to save lives! No pressure, honest.
