Do you have aspirations of becoming a consultant Clinical Scientist? Are you wondering what it’s really like to do the Higher Specialist Scientific Training (HSST) programme? Let us bring you closer to scientists who have first-hand experience to share.
In this first episode I chat with George Burghel (genomics) and Jo McCullagh (blood transfusion) about their experiences of the interview, the best and most challenging parts of the programme, and the advice they would give to prospective applicants. George and Jo are both on Twitter. You can find them using @MccullaghJojomc and @BurghelG
I hope you enjoy this first interview. There are three more in this short series, each with scientists from different specialisms. Many thanks to George and Jo for chatting with me, and to Tim Husselbury for sharing his podcasting and editing experience.
