Holly MorrisHost: Holly is finishing surgical training in Trauma and Orthopaedics. This means that she specialises in fixing broken bones and managing problems with bones and joints. In addition, she has an interest in the role that textiles play within healthcare and collaborates with professionals across both the textile and medical industry to improve the products we use within healthcare.

There are so many different careers out there! Some you know, some you might have heard of and some which you may never have even considered! In this class, Holly will give an overview of her fascinating and unusual career in Trauma and Orthopaedics and how the role combines two very different industries of healthcare and textiles. She will discuss a day in the life working in her job and the path she took in her career to reach the point she is now. 

This is a great class to highlight the huge range of careers available and the benefit of exploring different routes to find a career that suits you.
