Logo for NES


This year’s event will focus on the trainee experience in navigating the options for their development as a postgraduate scientist.

The day is run by trainees for trainees and includes workshops that cover the experience of people going through clinical scientist portfolio submission, those that have experience of AHCS equivalence bids, and people following speciality development without the intention of further registration.

There will be keynote speakers giving an insight into innovation and, literally, going the extra mile in their career journey. The leadership and future contribution of scientists to the challenges faced by the NHS will depend on how well our current postgraduate scientists are being prepared, and how proactive trainees are in seeking out personal development.

Posters and Prizes

The event will also have a Poster competition, providing  great way to tell colleagues about any aspect of your work as a scientist, perhaps where you have led a project, been involved in some service improvement or introduced a new techique. Explain why it is important and the benefit. Individual submission prizes of £200 towards CPD support, or £700 for joint submissions up to 3 trainees.

Prize winners will be exhibited on the NES website as exemplars.

To register for the event

The event is being held at the COSLA Conference Centre, Verity House, 19 Haymarket Yards, Edinburgh, EH12 5BH. The event is free and will run from 10am to 3:30pm with a complimentary lunch.
