Healthcare Science Postgraduate Scientist Trainees in NHSScotland: Assuring Postgraduate Scientist Training Friday 03 February 2017

NHS Education for Scotland invites healthcare science postgraduate scientist trainees and supervisors to your fifth national event.  This year we continue the focus on the quality management of our diverse trainee postgraduate scientist community. Whilst the driver for some of this work was initially the requirements underpinning STP clinical scientist training, NES recognises the multiple pathways within postgraduate scientist training. So, we need your views and creativity to help refine our shared approach as to how we monitor and support postgraduate scientist training – regardless of discipline or registration intention. The workshops will explore our guidelines, self-assessment and review, and ideas for monitoring progression.

Our poster exhibition is a chance for trainees to demonstrate project work and build their repertoire of poster submissions.

Regardless of identity, specialty or destination, today’s event is an opportunity to hear about the development of Scotland’s healthcare science postgraduate “deanery”, and to contribute to it.

Our event is free with complimentary lunch.


Posters and Prizes

Science is about communication. Today’s event is a great way to tell colleagues about any aspect of your work as a scientist, perhaps where you have led a project, been involved in some service improvement or introduced a new technique. Explain why it is important and the benefit. Individual submission prizes of £200 towards CPD support, or £700 for joint submissions of up to 3 trainees.

Prize winners will be exhibited on the NES website as exemplars.




Who Should Attend?

Healthcare science postgraduate trainees and their supervisors.
