The Academy of Medical Sciences internship scheme, running for almost ten years, gives PhD students a fully-funded first-hand experience of the medical science environment, from policy reports and consultations to grant panels and career support.
Over a three-month fully-funded internship, interns gain personal insights into how research impacts the wider biomedical system and can build valuable networks with the UK’s most eminent medical scientists and key science and health stakeholders.
