Launch of new mentorship scheme for healthcare researchers

Developing world-class researchers across the healthcare professions in England is the aim of a new mentorship scheme.  The scheme provides high quality mentorship to healthcare researchers who have been awarded national research fellowships. It provides the opportunity for them to maximise their potential and have a positive impact on the lives of patients through the quality of their care.

The Mentorship for Health Research Training Fellows scheme is coordinated by Dr Geraldine Byrne from the University’s School of Nursing, Midwifery and Social Work and is delivered in partnership with the Academy of Nursing, Midwifery and Health Visiting Research (UK), the Allied Health Professionals Research Network, Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, Imperial College London and the University of Huddersfield. It supports researchers awarded with NIHR Clinical Academic Training (CAT) and Clinical Scientist Research Training and will foster an on-going community of mentorship across England.
