Aimed at year 10 students who are passionate about science, this exciting programme aims to provide eligible students with an awareness of the diverse range of career opportunities in healthcare science.

The programme is designed for students who enjoy science at school and are considering study and career opportunities in the future. The week-long programme will highlight the diverse range of career opportunities available within healthcare science in the NHS.
