An update from Tegan, who worked with us on work experience a few weeks ago.:
“As a WSFC student who has just finished year 12 and is potentially looking at doing a degree in History, I wanted to complete some work experience at the George Marshall Medical Museum. I was there for three days with another student, and had the opportunity to engage in a range of activities.
These included cataloguing photographs, transcribing notes from patients suffering with melancholia at Powick Hospital and assisting at a book release event about the Spanish Flu. I really enjoyed attempting to transcribe the doctors notes - it was difficult to try and decipher them, but interesting to gain an insight into the quite tragic lives of some of the patients within the notes themselves. Overall, I found my time at the museum incredibly engaging and very beneficial.”
