NHS Education for Scotland’s seventh national conference for you. The route to becoming a registration (whether HCPC or accredited register) is diverse, but there are generic characteristics influencing completion. Successful outcomes depend on: a clear plan, a strong network of support and timely monitoring of progression. Engagement with peers and sight of role models are critical. Networking and developing “softer” skills are equally important and sometimes overlooked in the process of becoming a scientist. Our event is an opportunity to learn how all these elements are being addressed and NES’s overarching role in assuring training across Scotland. The workshops will explore issues relating to training progression, developing resources to support scientific practise and a specific focus on human factors awareness for trainees.

Our event is an opportunity to showcase your poster work and build on your repertoire of poster submissions... all good for the CV.

Regardless of identity, specialty or destination, it is an opportunity to hear about the ongoing development of Scotland’s healthcare science community and to contribute to it. Our event is free with complimentary lunch.


Posters and Prizes
Science is about communication. This 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 by a healthcare science trainee with prizes of £200, or £700 for joint submissions of up to 3 healthcare science trainees, towards CPD support. Prize winners will be exhibited on the NES website as exemplars.

Who Should Attend?

For healthcare science postgraduate trainees and their supervisors.
