Academy of Medical Sciences
The Academy offers policy internships plus has a number of initiatives to inspire medical students with research. These are a key component in the Academy’s drive to 'attract and develop the brightest individuals to careers in biomedical science’. We want to encourage a steady, ongoing flow of medical students into academic training positions by providing support and development opportunities. Students spend three months at the Academy offices in central London. The scheme is designed to give students first-hand experience of the medical science policy environment, to gain insights into how research can impact on policy, and to build valuable networks with the UK’s most eminent medical scientists and key science and health stakeholders.
