Careers Talk For Our Biomedical Scientists

Sarah Jameson, a Biomedical Scientist currently working at Whiston Hospital, St Helens, visited our L3 Biomedical Scientists. She spoke about her educational background, career thus far, her favourite parts of Biomedical Science and what drives her passion for the subject.
The students then asked Sarah any questions they had. Sarah then spoke 1-2-1 to our Biomedical Scientists Students about their own aims and aspirations.  A fantastic visit from a busy scientist who gave up her day off to visit our students who are embarking on this new course at St John Rigby College.
