Because I wanted a job which impacted people's daily life/patient centred whilst also using my academic skills from my undergraduate degree.
Describe what you do
I am training to be a Clinical Scientist in Audiology, which involves supporting patients of all ages with hearing difficulties, tinnitus and balance problems. As part of my role, I participate in clinics and support the audiologists and clinical scientists. As part of the scientist training programme, which lasts 3 years, I am also studying for a MSc in Neurosensory Science through the University of Manchester, which has a combination of lectures taught remotely and face-to-face.
What do you enjoy most about your role?
I enjoy this role as I can communicate with patients daily and improve their quality of life. I am also fortunate to have a fully funded MSc in Neurosensory Science as part of the role, which allows me to develop my research skills and support my clinical skills.
What would you say to someone thinking about a career in the NHS?
In my personal experience, the NHS has allowed me to develop my career in a job I enjoy and have great satisfaction from improving the lives of others.
