Announcing our UCL Healthcare Engineering Impact Fellows for 2021-22

18 October 2021

UCL Institute of Healthcare Engineering is delighted to have accepted 18 new cohort members onto our Impact Fellowship Scheme for 2021-22.

The annual scheme trains and guides an Impact cohort to build their skills, grow their networks and build up to leading their own activity at the end of the year. 

The first months of the Fellowship will be focused on training and skills-building. The focus will be on making this as personalised to the needs of the Fellows as possible, but our Impact Fellows will explore ideas like how to measure their impact, how to engage new voices, values of co-production, how to engage with policymakers, how to communicate their research to different audiences, how to work with community groups and patients. 

Fellows will receive additional advice and guidance, including mentorship from experts, peer-to-peer learning activities and opportunities for external network-building and secondments. Crucially, all Fellows will be supported to take part in at least one structured activity each term that will allow them to practice the skills they've just learnt. They will also have access to funding pots in Summer 2022 to take the lead on individual activities as a culmination of their learning. 

The sucessful applicants cut across a wide range of discplines and departments within UCL's healthcare engineering community, and we are excited to see how the cohort learns from their peers and is strengthened through this diversity. 

The initiative has been spearheaded by UCL Institute of Healthcare Engineering's Engagement Delivery Group. Email Georgie Cade, g.cade@ucl.ac.uk if you are interested in finding out more or have ideas for external organisations or potential mentors to engage in this programme.

We look forward to keeping you updated with how our Fellows progresses throughout the year!
