School-led event

Scientist Training Programme 2021 Induction

Last updated: 14th July 2021

Trainees joining the Scientist Training Programme (STP) in September 2021 will need to attend this key event as part of their induction to the training programme.

The induction event will inform trainees about:

  • the training programme
  • their responsibilities and that of their training officer
  • assessments and competencies

Fellow STP trainees will talk about their experiences of being on the training programme and training officers will share how they conduct work based training in the departments. Trainees will also hear about how the work of healthcare scientists impacts directly on patient care and service delivery in the NHS.

This event will be a fantastic opportunity for all new trainees to find out more about the programme and to network virtually with the School, trainee networks, professional bodies and the universities, as well as with fellow trainees.

The main part of the induction event will start at 10:00am and finish at approximately 3:30pm. However, trainees will be able to join the event from 8:00am to interact and network with each other. They will also have the opportunity to network with professional bodies and universities between 9:00am and 4:00pm and socialise via speed networking with fellow trainees until 5:00pm.
