DoM In2Science and Young Scientist Days - summer 2022
16 August 2022
Hannah Peckham & Nina De Gruijter organise Young Scientist Days and In2Science placements in the Division of Medicine
Young Scientist Days
Local sixth form students from three seperate schools attended a one-day workshop in the Division of Medicine this summer. They attended short talks with doctors and scientists in the division to learn about careers in medicine and research. Students were also able to experience a working lab and learn how to pipette and run gel electrophoresis.
Sixth formers interested in STEM were selected from disadvantaged backgrounds. They were matched with appropriate local professionals in their chosen field. The Division of Medicine hosted two groups this year. Each group visited the division of medicine for five days.
Dr Nina De Gruijter supported seven students who hope to study medicine and pharmacy. During their visit they were able to work on a lab project which involved them being taken through a case study of an arthritic knee, which they wrote a short report about, to learn about differential diagnostic skills as medics.
