Continuing development to boost knowledge, support project delivery and improve patient care
Enabling and supporting educational development is one of the central building blocks of the Birmingham Health Partners alliance. We are committed to supporting training, helping to embed research findings, sharing knowledge and offering new qualifications, with the ultimate aim of improving patient outcomes and accelerating access to drugs, devices and diagnostics.
Our clinical academic programmes support the national agenda to increase the capability of non-medical professionals to contribute to the improvement of patient outcomes and innovations in healthcare.
Individuals undertaking these programmes will begin to develop the skills and knowledge required to undertake their own clinical research and progress along the clinical academic career pathway.
The programmes are funded by Health Education England (HEE) in the West Midlands (HEE-WM) and are designed to link into the HEE/National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) Integrated Clinical Academic (ICA) Programme for Non-medical Healthcare Professionals.
