I perform polysomnography set-up (preparing patients for sleep study through a series of diagnostic tools), educate patient on continuous airway pressure (CPAP) therapy, perform CPAP titration and conduct brief analysis of sleep study.
How I got the job
The internship experience I gained at the USC has helped me to secure a job as a Polysomnographer / Sleep Scientist.
I did my internship through USC at this particular sleep laboratory and based on my interest in sleep study/medicine, I was given a position to further enhance my knowledge.
The fact that I hold a USC qualification in biomedical science with a major in clinical measurement also enhanced my opportunities.
What I enjoy most
I love the fact that I learn something new almost every day. I love challenges. Since this is a new area of interest for me, that alone is enough to grab my attention. In this position, I never get bored. Every day is a learning experience. I also really like the staff and the atmosphere is just amazing.
I really didn’t know what I wanted to do at first. I chose biomedical science because I thought it would give me the opportunity to branch out into other science degree like medicine, physiotherapy, pharmacology, vascular science and others.
My interest in clinical measurement came at the end of my second year, when I realised it offered industry experience and a job opportunity.
It turned out to be the right decision as I have enjoyed every bit of it.
I chose USC for its beautiful environment and its five stars for teaching quality in the Good Universities Guide.
