The aims of the network are simple:
Showcase trainee scientists in the Wessex region; ensure that each Trust is aware of us, our role and our different training schemes. Why? So that in the future we will be considered in decisions regarding funding, secondments, services etc.
Promote education and conference attendance.
Share ideas, create projects and get involved.
Unite scientists within the wider healthcare organisation.
Very importantly, socialise and support each other. We realise that moving for the respective training schemes can mean moving to an entirely different location. A location where you might know no one and be far from home. If all you want to gain from this network is to be welcomed by a friendly face, we can provide that.
We want to develop material to support you, such as useful contacts and links, examples of research projects and electives and information on accessing events to develop scientific and professional skills. Moreover we want to ensure the wellbeing of every scientist undergoing training through the School.
