On 15th June 2023, MAHSE held their annual STP Research Day. The STP Research Day gives trainees an opportunity to showcase their research projects to their cohort and staff. Invitations were open to third year trainees to give either an oral or poster presentation invitations were also extended to second year trainees for the latter.

Etc venues hosted the event this year and whilst we experienced one of the hottest weeks of the year, the air conditioning was something to be grateful for on that particular day! We had attendance from trainees, staff, training officers and members of the National School for Healthcare Science (NSHCS).


Hosted by Dr Phil Macdonald, MAHSE Deputy- Director for STP, the day kicked off with our first two trainee presentations followed by our key note speaker, Professor Joyce Harper, author, academic, scientist, educator and podcaster. Her field is Reproductive Science based at University College London. 

Posters were up on display in one of the syndicate rooms and were presented during refreshment breaks. The last round of trainee talks concluded after lunch. Lunch saw us enjoy a lovely continental bento box meal.



We had the pleasure of having some of our academic colleagues and our lead lay representatives, getting involved in judging oral and poster presentations. Afterwards, Phil and Professor Carol Ainley, MAHSE Director, announced prize winners. MAHSE would like to thank everyone for taking part in one of our proudest days. There was a short talk from Carol, recognising all the hard work that our STP trainees put in for the duration of their course.

We are very much looking forward to Research Day 2024!
