Electives and placements at PKB
To further support students in their learning of the tools of digital health and care, PKB offers internships and elective placements.
This is being introduced with a view to nurturing talented students who wish to learn more about the implications of a patient-controlled, electronic personal health records (PHRs) for patients and their health and social care providers.
Within this work, we recently offered 4 Leicester medical students an internship placement over the summer holidays (learn more here). The students joined PKB teams that suited their interests - from product development and software engineering to information governance and customer success - and all spoke positively about their experience.
We then expanded the placement offering to other healthcare education institutions as part of electives and Student Selected Component modules.
