Update on Modernising Scientific Careers Val Davison Head of National Healthcare Science School of Genetics
Overview Background Geographical spread and location of trainees Role of the National Healthcare Science School of Genetics Training Programmes – STP and PTP 2011 and onwards
Pilot programme initiated in April 2009 with training commencing for HCS and HCSP in October 2009. Two cohorts (2009 and 2010) of HCS and HCSP trainees spread across 16 laboratories in England and Wales PTP is 2 year work based programme for 2009 and 2010 only (as pilot programme). To be rolled out as 3 year integrated BSc from 2011 STP is aligned with MSC programme to be rolled out from 2011 for Genetics STP has part time masters programme delivered by The University of Nottingham Training programmes are overseen by the National Healthcare Science School of Genetics hosted by NHS West Midlands Workforce Deanery Online assessment tool supports work based assessment Background

Role of the National Healthcare Science School of Genetics Oversee the delivery of the training programme. Work in partnership with stakeholders Curriculum review and revision In conjunction with ETB and RCPath Quality Assurance In conjunction with ETB Trainee pastoral care Assessment (online and end of year and end of programme) Coordination of national meetings and events Communications event OGT visit for practitioners Delivery of train the trainer programme
The Training Programmes Healthcare Scientists (STP) - Resources Training Manual – Healthcare Scientist Training Programme In Clinical Laboratory Genetics (version 2 September 2010) Online Assessment and Personal Development Management System (Version 2 April 2010) Masters in Clinical Genetics Course Handbook (Nottingham) Healthcare Science Practitioners (PTP) - Resources Training Manual – Healthcare Science Practitioner Training Programme in Clinical Laboratory Genetics (version 2 September 2010) Online Assessment and Personal Development Management System (Version 2 April 2010)
Academic Programme (MSc) Early Scientific Experience Genetics of Learning Disorders Infertility & Disorders of Sexual Differentiation Population Screening Cancer 3-Year Genetics STP Curriculum Clinical Pathways Professional Development Rotational Programme (Blood Sciences & Cellular Pathology)
Progress Training programmes externally evaluated –Constructive criticism which is informing development STPs all doing well at MSc Practitioners had first annual progress review ( same standard as GT assessments ) Online assessment tool being upgraded National training days for practitioners being looked at Postgraduate diploma being considered for HCSPs
Moving to the Future MSC has been approved by new ministers Mentioned in dispatches –We will increase the use of highly qualified clinical scientists in the NHS to free up doctors to focus on the work that only they can do, as part of the Modernising Scientific Careers programme. This programme will save the NHS in excess of £250 million per year.
Practitioner Training Integrated BSC – in 2010 – ie already started ! –University of West of England 5 students –University of Bradford 4 students Next year –Also potentially London
Healthcare Science Practitioners Training 1 st cohort out of degree in 2013 Potential for in house training programme following current model to be an interim training programme GT training programme will not recruit new trainees
Healthcare Scientists Training Programme Will be rolled out in 2011 for most disciplines Genetics to be part of Blood Sciences and Cellular Science Looking at new model which combines both options for rotations HEIs will be commissioned soon for next year Introductory HEI block just 1 month not 3 as says in diagram
