2018 Intern Scheme Dissemination Day

For the sixth year running, the Centre Intern Scheme has once again provided the opportunity for new graduates and medical students (3rd year or later) interested in research in sport, exercise and osteoarthritis to obtain first-hand experiences of multi-disciplinary research environments.

For the past 8 weeks, five interns have worked alongside active researchers within the Arthritis Research UK Centre for Sport, Exercise and Osteoarthritis and collaborating institutions. Via mentorship from key senior researchers, they have been exposed to research design, conduct, governance and analysis and dissemination activities in a range of health disciplines.

Througout the 8 week programme, the interns have visited each of the Centre's institutions to be exposed to the research being undertaken plus sessions on PPI, writing for journals, ethnic minority participants in research, statistics, reviewing a research paper, women in science, and Functional Movement Screening. 

On Wednesday 22 August 2018 the interns confidently presented their research projects at the Dissemination Day hosted by Dr Carly McKay at the University of Bath. Congratulations to all the interns who have completed the programme!
