Higher Specialist Scientist Training Programme
At a level similar to a medical consultant, the Higher Specialist Scientist Training Programme aims to increase scientific skills at the highest level of healthcare science. It is currently in development and will be a four to five year course after which students will be eligible for a consultant healthcare scientist position. These positions will also have a role in research and education.
Those who undertake this programme will come to greatly increase the level of expertise within the healthcare science field. More information can be found on the
NHS Careers website.
