Im currently a first year undergraduate biomedical scientist student in Ireland. My course is focused maily towards medical labratory science. I have heard of 1st year students getting work placement during the summer after their first year of college and I am very interested in this. I feel that this would be a fantastic way to spend my summer by building up my biomedical knowledge. I find I learn alot more from my practicals rather than from my lectures as I get to physically carry out and see the experiments take place.
I am aware that it would be difficult to get a lab to take on a 1st year student but I would be very grateful if you know of any programes or labs that might take me on for the summer.
