Specialism training

Last December (2020) we held several virtual meetings with trainees and training officers based on specialisms to learn more about what competencies are more difficult to complete due to restrictions and what resources others have been using that might be helpful.

Following these meetings, we’ve worked with healthcare scientists to gather some online resources to help support your training. Take a look at what’s available for your specialism.
