In the lecture we considered the effect of polar bonds on drug absorption and administration and we discussed the first pass effect and how this must be considered by medics when calculating drug doses.

The Medical Society meets weekly in the Science Department, and is open to all Sixth Form students interested in pursuing a career in Medicine or Veterinary Science.

We are always interested in suggestions for guest speakers; if there are any parents or family friends working in a research capacity in medicine or a related field who would be willing give a talk online or in person, please contact Miss Coral Smith, Head of Science Faculty.
