IBMS Awards Lincoln Graduate for Outstanding Achievement
After graduating with a degree in Biomedical Science from the University of Lincoln, Matthew Gilbert also received the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS) award for Outstanding Achievement in a Biomedical Science Honours Degree.
Matthew wrote about his experience at Lincoln below.
My degree has enabled me to explore all areas of Biomedical Science, from Genetics to Microbiology. I never thought I would be able to learn a varied range of disciplines in such detail, yet thanks to my amazing lecturers, I have managed to do just that. I firmly believe that my time at Lincoln has laid the foundations for my future career in Biomedicine and I hope to build on this by working within the NHS.
Moving forward, I hope to complete my portfolio and start my career as a Biomedical Scientist in the NHS. I am very excited to do this as I believe this will enable me to make a tangible improvement to a patient’s wellbeing by contributing to their diagnosis. In doing so, I’ll also have the potential to work with fantastic colleagues in a variety of disciplines. This is why I joined the IBMS, as membership will allow me to keep up-to-date with all areas within Biomedical science, as well as the potential to constantly keep improving myself through their CPD schemes.
