The MAHSE STP Open Day will be made up of online content taken from the 2022 Open Day. We May also have some live content coming up in January 2023, so watch this space! Please find your specialism further down the page. (Live content will be recorded, please turn off your webcams if you would prefer not to be in the recording)
The application window to apply for the Scientist Training Programme will be announced soon but will most likely open in January 2023. Please view the link below for information and details of NSHCS Open Day Events and Applications:

Student and Alumni Testimonials:
“I think the course overall was a great opportunity to explore the wider aspects of health Informatics which I wouldn’t have necessarily seen at work. It complimented my day to day work really well, and also allowed me to expand my horizons. In terms of career progression, having being exposed to much more, compared to what I had seen at work up until then, it helped me decide what exactly I wanted to achieve with my career and motivated me to pursue it.”
“I completed the Scientific Training Programme (STP) in Clinical Bioinformatics (Physical Sciences specialism) in 2017. I was an in-service trainee, so upon completion, I returned to the position I held before starting the STP in 2014, which was as a Research Scientist in the Northern Medical Physics and Clinical Engineering Directorate of The Newcastle-upon-Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. Following completion of the STP, my role involved supporting the directorate’s role as an External Assessment Centre for the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) Medical Technologies Evaluation Programme and other projects in the directorate. I led a Trust-wide audit of a new non-invasive coronary artery modelling technology (HeartFlow) using electronic health records for the Innovation and Technology Payment (ITP) programme, delivered by the Academic Health Science Networks (AHSNs). During this time, I also became an Associate Researcher in the Faculty of Medical Sciences at Newcastle University.
In 2019, I moved into a Clinical Scientist position with the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Newcastle In Vitro Diagnostics Co-operative. I primarily work on the quantitative aspects of a range of different projects, including leading data modelling and statistical analysis activities. I develop R functions/Shiny apps for the group and co-manage the groups’ Shiny app portfolio. Our group have also had an important role in supporting the UK’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, where I have led the analysis of a national survey of health and social care professionals for the Department of Health and Social Care and a systematic review and individual patient data meta-analysis of a COVID-19 diagnostic for the COVID-19 National Diagnostic Research and Evaluation Platform. I am also co-applicant on two submitted grants: ‘A machine learning algorithm to support ambulance practitioner identification of non-stroke patients presenting with stroke symptoms’ and ‘GlycoScore: Superior prostate cancer diagnosis using a simple blood test’.”
“In 2015 I started the Scientist Training Program (STP) in Clinical Bioinformatics (Physical Sciences) based at the Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals Trust (RLBHT). During the 3 year program I joined the Medial Physics and Clinical Engineering group to study computing, statistics and informatics in the clinical environment. After completing the STP at RLBHT I took a 3-month data scientist post at Aintree University Hospital Trust where I was involved in data science projects to help improve clinical pathways. During the data scientist post I applied and was accepted to a Clinical (Computer) Scientist post at University Hospitals Birmingham with Radiotherapy Physics where I had previously visited on my STP Elective. In this post I am involved in supporting and developing clinical computer systems in Radiotherapy. In the near future I am aiming to join the Higher Specialist Scientist Program (HSST) specialising in Clinical Bioinformatics (Physical Sciences).”
We have a recording from 2021 where Clinical Scientists in Cardiac Science, Sleep Science and Clinical Care Science answered questions, along with Academic Leads for each of the disciplines. If you’re interested in CCVRS Sciences but aren’t sure which specialism, or want to know more about the professions this video will help.
