Passionate about improving healthcare education to prepare our future clinicians, with a focus on work-ready graduates who will be able to adapt to the challenges of healthcare in the coming years
Understand the pressures our junior and early career healthcare workforce face and want to ensure they can stretch themselves, have satisfying careers, and adapt to the changing needs of the population
Believe we have to ensure our students have realistic expectations and are excited about what their future career pathways could look like.
To achieve all this we need to invest in good governance around clinical training.
We need to support students and graduates across the training pipeline or continuum, and offer career choices that will keep them motivated and engaged.
As a firm believer in preventative healthcare, accept that there are challenges in adapting the current healthcare workforce models to meet future patient needs - but this has to be our priority. Keeping people well and out of hospital has to be an important focus in the future and we need to ensure our students and graduates are able to play a leadership role in this. They need to be good ‘system navigators’ so they can influence future research, healthcare policy development and resourcing at a local, national and global level.
Critical to ensuring we have a strong record for producing work-ready graduates is support for our academic, scientific and clinical staff who are the foundation for this success.
