Medical Statistics Careers Event 2019

This event is aimed at students with an interest in the analysis of data within pharmaceuticals, healthcare and/or medical research.

We welcome exhibitors from pharmaceutical companies, CROs, CTUs, academic research units and regulatory agencies. For students, this is not just a recruitment event, but a day where they can learn more about the types of opportunities available within medical statistics.

The 2019 event will be held at The Venue@DMU, at De Montfort University, Leicester on Wednesday 20th February 2019. A draft agenda and links to the registration forms for the event are shown below, and further details about the event will be shared in due course. We look forward to seeing you there!
