The HSST Research Project Day was held on Wednesday 24th January 2018 with over 130 delegates attending. Trainees in Cohort 1 and Cohort 2 currently doing either the C1 Innovation Project or the C2 Research Project, their academic supervisors and workplace supervisors attended the event. Representatives from the NSHCS also attended the event.

The event provided the opportunity for trainees to meet with their academic and workplace supervisor to discuss their projects. In the morning, trainees attended subject specific talks with their Programme Directors on what to expect from the C2 Research Project whilst academic and workplace supervisors attended a talk by Professor Anne White (Academic Director of the DClinSci) which outlined their role and responsibilities for C1 and C2.

In the afternoon, trainees attended workshops to help them to progress with either their C1 Innovation Project or C2 Research Project. C1 workshops included “Giving a talk to a lay audience” and “How to write your innovation report” whilst C2 workshops included “Planning a paper” and “Giving a professional talk”. Academic and workplace supervisors met with Programme Directors to discuss the assessment of the DClinSci.
