On Thursday 10th January, we welcomed over 40 trainees, academic and workplace supervisors from Cohorts 1 and 2 of HSST to a day of workshops and sessions held in Manchester.

Professor Judy Williams, Deputy Associate Dean for Staff Development and Director of the Centre for Academic and Researcher Development at The University of Manchester, delivered workshops for the trainees on planning a paper and writing a thesis. Academic and workplace supervisors attended a session delivered by Professor Anne White, Academic Director for HSST at The University of Manchester and MAHSE Deputy Director for HSST, on their role in supporting their trainees and the examination process of the thesis. Trainees also had the opportunity to meet with their supervisors to discuss their individual projects.  Following lunch and networking, there was a Q&A session with a panel comprising programme directors, programme administrators and Dr. Mike Thomas, NSHCS HSST Lead and Professional Lead for Blood and Infection Sciences.

Podcasts and presentations from the day are provided below.
