Healthcare Science Education 2018: What is the role of leadership in education?

Calling all Healthcare Scientists!

Join us on the 27th September for a meeting to discuss education within Healthcare Science:

What is the role of leadership in education? How to maximise the impact of the opportunities ahead of us

This meeting will showcase current work and facilitate discussions about teaching across boundaries in education. It is aimed at Healthcare Scientists of all levels and from all disciplines, but would be especially useful for Lead Healthcare Scientists, managers, and those with an education input within their organisation. We also welcome non-Healthcare Scientists who are involved with the profession as part of their organisational role, such as Chief Executives, Medical Directors, Directors of Education, and Chief Nurses.

The day will support networking for both trainers and trainees and will consist of a mixture of lectures and workshop sessions that aim to increase attendees knowledge of:

- National Healthcare Scientist educational strategy

- Education theory

- Options for delivering education locally

Confirmed speakers include:

- Dr Peter Steer (Chief Executive, Great Ormond Street Hospital)

- Ruth Thomsen (Scientific Director, NHS England)

- Mark Cole (Leadership Development Programme Manager, Leadership Academy)

- Dr Sue Fergy (Consultant in Healthcare Education and Leadership and Executive Coach, Maytree Consulting)

- Angela Douglas MBE (Scientific Director Genetics Laboratories, Liverpool Women's Hospital)

- Professor Steven Keevil (Head of Medical Physics, Guy's and St Thomas' Hospitals)

Each attendee will have the opportunity to attend 2 workshops from the 6 that are available:

· Assessing learning run by the National School of Healthcare Science

· Leadership skills and Advanced Roles for Healthcare Scientists run by the WISE Fellows and Catherine Ross

· Completing Portfolios run by the London Trainee Network and Derren Ready

· Delivering education differently run by the Theatre of Debate

· Pedagogical Research for Healthcare Science run by Ian Davies and Dr Angela Priestman

Please note that due to a change of venue we have had to charge for the conference this year.  However we would not want anyone to be unable to attend due to cost restrictions and so we do have a limited number of bursaries available.  If you would like to apply for a bursary, please email either or for an application form.

This year, the one day conference is being delivered jointly by NECL Healthcare Scientists
