Company

Babylon Health

What is your job?

I test the quality and safety of a medical app, to help make it work better for people who will use it to get medical advice. I find out about the ways people want to use the app, and test it to make sure it works properly. After my five-week internship, I will go back to medical school, where I am studying to become a doctor.

This is the future. These technologies are going to make things better for the patient and the doctor.

Qualifications

At school, I picked Triple Science, Maths and Further Maths. I also did an Engineering GCSE. Then at university, I did a Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering degree.

Best thing about your job?

I get to work in two subjects that I am interested in; learning to be a doctor and as an intern using new technology to help patients. Medicine and technology go hand in hand.

Top tips

Just enjoy your subjects. You should explore what you enjoy doing and learning about. You are allowed to change over time. Keep doing your hobbies, because later on in life they will help you stay healthy, and if you want to go to university they will help with your personal statement.
