Students

Could you help a small business in Cornwall to launch a product or service that could improve the quality of life for others?

EPIC has set up a scheme for work-based internships, open to the University of Plymouth students from all disciplines.

Each internship is bespoke, and current opportunities can be viewed via mycareers. The University ensures that you are insured, treated fairly and working towards the brief set by the business.

Our team will assist with handling your application and be involved in the interview process too.

Depending on the project that the business sets for you, you could be typically employed between one and six months, either remotely or within existing business facilities.

Register your interest to discuss taking your first step to using your degree in the working world.

about eHealth

At EPIC we are passionate about empowering future health and social care professionals to become eProfessionals; having knowledge of and embracing digital tools that could help within their work and with the people that they care for.

'Reflecting on my experience of demonstrating and supporting service users to access digital health services, was an eye-opening opportunity that highlighted the barriers people face when trying to access basic levels of healthcare and the urgent need to remove these barriers. Through my voluntary work to become a Gold Digital Health Champion with EPIC, I have learnt that the fundamental things service users want are to feel that they are heard and that they can access support, treatment or reassurance in a timely way. This is consistent with patients receiving face-to-face care and those engaging with digital health services, and a key learning point that will remain with me in practice.' (Alice, University of Plymouth student)

We are linked with the University’s school of nursing and midwifery, in the digital professionalism stream and can offer students the opportunity to volunteer at EPIC events in order to learn more about health technology. Keep an eye on our Twitter feed for the latest opportunities.

We can welcome groups to book into our EPICentre to interact with eHealth technologies and learn more about their uses.
