An art session at the Holy Trinity academy in Barnsley, South Yorkshire is designed to lead young students through the process of drawing the human body, with the ultimate goal of inspiring them to pursue careers in medicine.

The class works primarily with 15 and 16-year-old art students and is led by a clinical researcher in burns and plastic surgery at the Canniesburn plastic surgery unit in Glasgow, as reported by The Guardian.

Clinical researcher, Meg Anderson, maintains that youth from underprivileged backgrounds are not represented well enough in the medical field, and breaking down any barriers that might dissuade them from pursuing medicine is key, she explains.

One study found that 80 percent of medical students are from households with medical professionals.
