Our Event
NHS Education for Scotland’s tenth national healthcare science conference is for you as a trainee or trainer. Our virtual event offers online webinar sessions over 3 days. We hope this format presents opportunities for colleagues to engage. Our sessions offer 5 hours of generic healthcare science training.

Our virtual event offers the opportunity to showcase your poster work. Regardless of identity, specialty or destination, it is an opportunity to hear about topics of interest to our healthcare science community and to contribute to it. Our event is free.

Poster Competition for Trainees
Can you explain science in an interesting way to the public? Our challenge this year is to produce a simple poster message that explains an engaging aspect of your work in a compelling and non-technical manner. Why does it matter? What difference does it make to the patient reading the poster?

As we have seen, communicating concisely and clearly is a key skill: never more so that during the pandemic! Posters should be submitted in PDF format by 31 December 2021 to This is to enable them to be judged by our panel in advance of the event. We recommend using Microsoft PowerPoint to design your posters.

Please note all posters will be displayed in an online public gallery and winners will be announced at the end of the final session. There will be prizes of £200 for individual submission by a healthcare science trainee, or £700 for joint submissions of up to 3 healthcare science trainees, towards CPD support.


Closing Date for Poster Submissions: 31 December 2021*
*Please send poster pdfs to

Closing Date for Registering: 21 January 2022 (extended to 31 January 2022)
