Get A-Head has a strong commitment to education and research into medical practice.
Besides research and basic sciences it also provides two scholarships a year to sponsor doctors in training who wish to undertake courses at universities within the West Midlands as part of their professional development.
We looked to the broader issues in health care and have sponsored six doctors and work with the West Midlands Postgraduate Deanery to do this.
So far we have supported Mr Hugh Griffiths in his study of Medical Law, Mr Ude Kale’s M.A. in Medical Ethics and Law, Mr Chris Ayshford in his project for a MSc in Quality Issues in Health Care and another three doctors complete their Masters in Medical Science!
We regularly fund the costs for Allied Health Professionals to attend specialist Head & Neck and Thyroid Study Day course at The Royal Marsden Hospital in London, to ensure our medical staff have the best and most up to date knowledge available to them when treating their patients.
We encourage interested trainees to find courses to suit their needs and our students are registered at the Universities of Birmingham, Warwick, Keele, Wolverhampton and Glasgow. Get A-Head is committed to sponsoring professional development in its widest aspects and fulfils a commitment in training, research and education.
