St. George’s University Hosting Stop-the-Bleed Workshop to Provide Essential Skills for Future Doctors in Thailand

Bangkok, 9 January 2024 – St. George’s University (SGU) School of Medicine in Grenada, the Caribbean, is inviting aspiring young medical enthusiasts in Thailand to participate in an upcoming workshop on Sunday 28 January, 9am-4pm, at the Grande Centre Point Terminal 21 (2 Soi Sukhumvit 19, Khlong Toei Nuea, Watthana, Bangkok 10110).

The Stop-the-Bleed workshop is specifically tailored for students in Year 11–13 who aspire to pursue a medical career in the United States or the United Kingdom. The training aims to equip participants with crucial life-saving skills while fostering a foundation for their future endeavors in the medical field.

Students will have the opportunity to acquire three potentially life-saving techniques, designed to apply pressure quickly and effectively before severe bleeding occurs. They will learn the fundamental skills of applying pressure to a wound by hand, master the art of packing a wound to control bleeding, and be taught how to apply a tourniquet. Upon successful completion of the training, students will be awarded a certificate.

Registration is open to all students in Year 11–13 interested in pursuing a medical career in the US or UK. Interested students are encouraged to contact Nalinee Jiemvithayanukul at

Not only will it serve as a fundamental aspect of medical training for students considering a future in healthcare, but the training will also empower them to make a positive impact in emergency situations, contributing to the well-being of their communities. Join us at the workshop and take the first step towards a rewarding medical career.”
