Professional Development for Investigators
The Education and Training theme seeks to provide outstanding educational and professional development opportunities for clinical and translational researchers within UCLH and UCL. The theme is led by Professor Geraint Rees with Dr Sarah Edwards and Professor John Wyatt.
The theme currently organises a range of courses on GCP and Research Governance.
In 2008 a brand new Masters degree program in Clinical and Experimental Medicine was launched aimed at both doctors and graduates in biomedical science and allied disciplines who wish to pursue a life-long career in the field of cutting edge translational medicine or health research.
The theme also oversees extensive training opportunities for clinical academics in the form of Academic Clinical Fellowship and Clinical Lecturer programmes.
After a successful application to the Department of Health in 2008 by the CBRC, UCL/UCLH now host 31 ACF and 20 CL programmes representing 119 and 48 trainees respectively. UCL/UCLH have also been extremely successful in the HEFCE ‘New Blood’ Clinical Senior Lecturer awards, winning 11 awards in the 2007 competition, the highest number of any UK university.
