Electives and placements at PKB

To further support students in their learning of digital remote consultations and patient management practices, PKB offers internship 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.

Our aim is now to expand the placement offering to other healthcare education institutions as part of electives or Student Selected Component modules.
