What we want to achieve
We want to address the challenges facing the NHS head-on. We are informing changes to the recruitment and selection of healthcare professionals, the work people do, the healthcare policy that shapes their work, and the resources they have to make it happen.
We are also leading and supporting healthcare organisations, providers and regulators in maximising their effectiveness of educational delivery and supporting the workforce.
We’re doing it through leading research to understand how to define, deliver and judge the impact of changes in professional practice. This research is informing national policy and guidelines.
We also deliver cutting-edge teaching to healthcare professionals through our PGCert, PGDip and MSc in Health Professions Education, and through our innovate CATALYST programme aimed at training and retaining new GPs.
