Kent clinical health practitioners can benefit from a new internship programme at the University aimed at developing their research capability.
Up to eight places are on offer for the internship programme, which is being funded by the Health Education Kent Surrey Sussex (HEKSS)/National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Integrated Clinical Academic Programme 2017-18.
The University’s Centre for Health Services Studies (CHSS) will provide the research training and development opportunities to a range of health practitioners under the programme. This will form part of CHSS’s commitment to support and advise health care staff across the region to develop and undertake research projects. HEKSS will award funding to support back-fill cost, tuition fees and reasonable expenses.
“We are delighted to have been awarded this valuable funding! It means CHSS can now provide research training and development opportunities to a range of local health practitioners. The programme will help the University to develop research capability and capacity across the south east region”.
CHSS Research Fellow Dr Ferhana Hashem (Intern Programme Leader)
