A day as a clinical scientist in embrology

You work at your local NHS hospital helping women who cannot have children. Today you begin work at 9am.

You collect eggs from your first patient which will be fertilised in the laboratory using IVF which will hopefully give the parents their longed-for child. Throughout the morning you see other patients, checking their fertility levels and carrying out other tests.

In the afternoon you spend time writing up reports and discussing your findings with clinical colleagues. Your job is hugely satisfying, with great opportunities to specialise in areas you find interesting.
