Workforce training

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.

BHP aim to facilitate increased opportunities for those within the NHS looking to pursue a career in academic research. Our clinical academic programmes also 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 develop the skills, knowledge and expertise required to undertake their own clinical research and progress along the clinical academic career pathway.
