Medical Statistics Taster Day 2018


Status update as of 07:15 on Wednesday 28th Feb: There is no snow in Leicester, so the event will be going ahead. We understand that everyone is travelling from varous parts of the UK today and some will have had quite a lot of snow where you are. We would advise all individuals to check their own travel plans, and travel at their own risk only if it is safe to do so, therefore we understand if you won't be able to make it.

We are pleased to announce that going forward the PSI MSc careers event will be known as the:

PSI Medical Statistics Taster Day 

We have decided to rebrand the event to reflect PSI’s move towards being more accessible to professionals and academics with an interest in the analysis of data within pharmaceuticals, healthcare and/or medical research.

We feel this new name encompasses the fact that the event is not only open to pharmaceutical companies and CROs, but also CTUs, academic research units and regulatory agencies.   For students, this also highlights that this is not necessarily a recruitment event just for MSc students, but a day where final year BSc, MSc and PhD students can gain some practical experience and learn more about the types of opportunities available within medical statistics.

The event will be held at the University of Leicester on Wednesday 28th February 2018, so we look forward to seeing you there!
