Avril starts clinical research work placement with Ian

Current Greenwich student, Avril Loynes, has begun her six-week work placement with Ian based on his recent research work on ‘Exercise Rehabilitation Programmes in Patients Who Have Undergone Surgery for Cancer’, at both the University of Greenwich and Maidstone Hospital.

Avril is currently preparing to begin her final year Sports Science (BSc Hons) degree program with the view to progressing to a Physiotherapy Master’s program. Avril is excited to work with the research and development department at Maidstone, to gain an insight into research as a career and a feel for the working life of an allied health professional.

Phoebe starts work placement

Phoebe started a work placement with Ian on Monday. She is a second-year human physiology student at the University of Leeds and has an interest in how exercise and sports can help with the treatment and recovery of people with medical conditions.

She is looking forward to working in the R&D department of Maidstone hospital and finding out what a career in research involves.

In her free time, Phoebe is an avid rock-climber. She just returned from a two week trip to the Alps, where she spent the majority of her time scaling cliff faces and dangling off ropes.
