The LSM Networking Scheme, now in its 5th year, provides an opportunity for current students to undertake clinical and/or research placements offered by Old Members, and 4-8 preclinical students take up this unique opportunity to work in hospitals and labs in the UK or abroad. This is an excellent way for preclinical medical students to contextualise their learning by undertaking an extended laboratory based project and/ or gain some clinical experience. Previous networking schemes have been offered in a variety of specialities ranging from paediatric oncology to vasculitis. Student’s thoroughly enjoy their experience and we are extremely grateful to all the Old Members who have provided placements in the past.
