Healthcare science ambassadors wanted

Are you passionate and enthusiastic about your healthcare science?

Healthcare science ambassadors are urgently wanted by the Chief Scientific Officer!

Those of us who already work in healthcare science know it’s an exciting and rewarding NHS career, but we need to spread the word and inspire the healthcare scientists of the future. This is where you come in.

The Chief Scientific Officer would like to create a national network of healthcare science ambassadors in collaboration with STEMNET to support schools‘ science activities to raise awareness of the diversity of career opportunities healthcare science professions provide. Could this be you?

What is a STEM ambassador?

We need healthcare science ambassadors from all 51 disciplines of healthcare science and from all grades of staff to promote the wide range of work we do.

What's involved?

You only have to give us half a day every year to become an ambassador. As an ambassador, you could support school activities such as:

• Healthcare Science Week
• science and engineering clubs
• STEM competitions and events
• extra-curricular experiences
• careers guidance and mentoring
• work-based placements for teachers and students in NHS labs.

One of the most important jobs for a healthcare science ambassador is simply to be yourself. Giving young people the chance to meet today’s healthcare scientists can be motivation enough to inspire future generations.

Those who already volunteer as ambassadors say it’s great fun, really rewarding and an excellent opportunity for networking and personal development.
