The Nuffield Department of Surgical Sciences (NDS) during lockdown launched a brand-new virtual work experience programme for students interested in pursuing a career in science and medicine.

NDS offers work experience placements for students aged 16 years old or over in July every year. Students would usually spend one full week (six students per week over two weeks) in the department, where they have the opportunity to shadow clinicians, observe the hospital in action, take part in hands-on activities within different research groups, and build basic lab skills and techniques.

To ensure that the students didn’t miss out as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, NDS adapted its on-site placement to provide students with a week-long virtual work experience programme.
