Careers Talk on Medicine

On Monday 27 January, Old Johnian James Nutt visited the School to speak to those members of the Sixth Form considering a future in medicine or sports science. In his presentation, which James was kind enough to prepare specially for the pupils attending, he outlined the possible career paths into medicine. He also gave pupils an invaluable insight into what they could expect to do during their higher education and training.


James was a member of East House and left St John’s in 2005. He is currently training to be an orthopaedic surgeon and is practising as a doctor at the Royal Surrey Hospital in Guildford. James brought with him some of the tools of the trade, including orthopaedic models and artificial replacement joints that he has been involved in developing. He finished the afternoon by coaching some members of the Upper Sixth in interview technique, preparing them to answer the types of question that will soon be put to them by admissions tutors of the universities of their choice.
