3rd year student Tami took part in a 10-week placement at the Glasgow Clinical Research Facility in which she was given the opportunity to work with patients receiving their first COVID-19 vaccination. She shared her experience with the GCU Student Life team.

“When I was told I was going to do a research placement I really didn’t know what to expect. I actually thought clinical research would be just journals and reading – I didn’t really think there would be patient contact. I was expecting to be sat at a computer all day…
I got the opportunity to watch people get vaccinated and then stay with them in the aftermath to make sure they weren’t experiencing any immediate side effects or allergic reactions.
I really enjoyed speaking to everyone…We had all walks of life involved; young people, old people, taxi drivers, surgeons – it was just really interesting. I always made sure I thanked them, because without them we wouldn’t be able to progress with the vaccine.”
