Healthcare Scientist Training Programme

Our department has been training clinical scientists for over 20 years. Following the modernising scientific careers initiative, we became a training centre for the new NHS Healthcare Scientist Training Programme (STP). You can find out more about the programme on NHS Careers.

In 2012 we contributed to the training of two of the first national intake of STP trainees, who were based in Portsmouth. In 2013 we recruited our first trainee to study in our department, who shares her experience here. We currently have four trainees going through the programme, and have plans for additional trainees in future.
