You can join the award-winning Operating Theatre Live team for two new episodes every week, as Sam and his clinical colleagues unpick the pathology of a new patient. And when you sign up for this series, you will also get top video tips for applying to medicine from the leading tutors at The Medic Portal.

The broadcast schedule covers a number of topics that will be useful for any aspiring medic. You can follow a student’s work experience journey hour-by-hour, or witness real dissections.

Watch an eye get dissected as the clinical experts discuss glaucoma, and learn about bowel issues as a section of the intestines is dissected. See how the brain is affected by stroke and multiple sclerosis while learning more about the myelin sheath. Discover how a patient’s foot problems are caused by an underlying lifestyle disease.

You can catch up on previous broadcasts, too. Watch a kidney get dissected to explore its function so you can understand a complex kidney problem, and meet a patient with signs of stroke that may be caused by an emergency blood clot elsewhere.
