My experience at the HDRUK internship was extremely rewarding. Initially, I found the Technical challenge slightly daunting as that was my first time of working on a health dataset and within a group. Also, as each week passed by and with members of my group being supportive, I felt comfortable working on the Technical challenge.
While working on the challenge, I honed my Python coding skills, data analysis skills, presentation skills, improved my communication and listening skills as well as my project management skills.
I felt a sense of satisfaction being able to apply the knowledge I have acquired during the course of my MSc degree on the Technical team challenge. I will definitely recommend the internship to others.
