Our Training and Development Programme is delivered through a flexible, pick and mix programme of introductory, stand-alone training courses, designed to equip researchers with the skills needed to translate research ideas into medical technology products and clinical solutions.
Courses for our winter 2021 programme of learning are now available to book:
NHS strategy and adoption/market assessment
22 and 23 November 9:30am – 12:30pm
This course will look at how to start innovating in the NHS context, and will provide you with the practical tools to assess your research for potential in a healthcare setting.
Using real case studies, we’ll explore how innovation works in the NHS, the opportunities and potential pitfalls to avoid when developing your research into something that can benefit patients.
Regulatory affairs for medical devices
