A newly-qualified clinical scientist working at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital has won a national award.
Selas Jennings was awarded ‘Rising Star’ at this year’s Advancing Healthcare Awards 2019 when she was a trainee clinical scientist and managed to beat some outstanding candidates from across the UK.
As the first trainee clinical scientist recruited to the cardiac physiology department Selas Selas has shown remarkable professional maturity. She prepared a successful bid for innovation funding to introduce a new 3D echo service whilst working on her own time on delivering a national exam preparation event for trainee clinical scientists.
The Rising Star Award which is sponsored by the College of Podiatry, is awarded to a member of staff who has shown a level of initiative, skill and commitment that is truly exceptional. Selas was nominated by colleague Rachel Cooper who think she is a ‘rising star’.
Rachel is Cardiac Physiology Manager and she is delighted that Selas has won. She said: “I am honoured to work with Selas and nominated her for her exceptional constellation of achievements during her 1st year post qualification as a Clinical Scientist.
“What is especially inspirational about Selas, however, is her humble nature and the extent to which many of her accomplishments are motivated by altruism rather than a desire for professional advancement or recognition.”
Selas said after receiving her award: “This is a great honour for me to receive this national award and I want to thank colleagues for nominating me.”
