The WHRI Work Experience Programme is for sixth form students who are interested in studying Medicine or a Biological/Biomedical related degree at university and are considering a career in a similar field.
This bi-annual programme was established by Prof Amrita Ahluwalia and has been organised and run by Dr Rayomand Khambata and Mr Ade Alele since 2017, benefitting approximately 230 young people to date. We aim to provide an opportunity to gain first-hand experience in laboratory and clinical research at one of the largest pharmacological research institutes in Europe. In addition, students will have the opportunity to learn about alternative careers within government health-related initiatives and fundraising for healthcare and research.
I found the lab days extremely insightful and eye-opening and also very helpful in deciding between a medical or science degree.
Checking patient history gave me an insight into the life of a doctor.
