Review: PSI Medical Statistics Careers Event

20th February 2019, The Venue @ DeMontfort University, Leicester, review by Sarah Nevitt (RSS Medical Section and YSS)

Ready and prepared with a badge for everyone, the Royal Statistical Society was represented at the annual PSI Medical Statistics Careers event by Sarah Nevitt (RSS Medical Section and Young Statistician’s Section) and Lucy Teece (Young Statistician’s Section).

Over 120 students from Mathematics and Statistics affiliated degree courses, attended a special afternoon showcasing career opportunities within Medical Statistics.

The event was organised by the Careers and Academic Liaison Committee of Statisticians in the Pharmaceutical Industry (PSI CALC) and 29 exhibitors attended from a range of pharmaceutical companies, clinical research organisations (CRO), clinical trials units, universities, regulatory agencies and professional societies.

Throughout the day, attendees learned all about the roles of medical statisticians across a diverse range of organisations from a panel of pharmaceutical, CRO and academic representatives, including a familiar face in an RSS t-shirt! My fellow panellists and I shared the best and most challenging parts of our roles, most nerve wracking moments, proudest achievements, our most interesting work travel experiences, most unusual project as well as our key advice for students starting off in their medical statistics career. Students also gained from the first hand experience of a new-starter in the field of medical statistics and received invaluable advice on job searching, applications and interviews.

The visitors to the Royal Statistical Society exhibitor stand were interested to hear the benefits of e-student or student fellow membership of the RSS, as well as the work of the YSS and of the Medical Section. In fact, many visitors were already RSS members, had attended previous RSS events or were students of GradStat accredited courses!

We wish all of the attendees well within their degree courses and their future careers and we look forward to welcoming many more new starters into the world of Medical Statistics.
