THIS (The Healthcare Improvement Studies) Institute has launched
Growing capacity and capability in healthcare improvement research is one of THIS Institute’s key goals. This will be achieved through a new research fellowship programme that builds on the improvement science programmes previously run by The Health Foundation.
The fellowships, which may be held at any UK university, offer talented researchers the opportunity to lead high-quality studies that will advance the field, to join a supported community of improvement researchers, and to develop their research leadership skills.
Three levels of fellowship available
Alongside disciplines already active in this area (such as health services research, epidemiology, and social science), THIS is looking for fresh thinking and contributions from fields within and beyond healthcare, including, for example, law, business studies, philosophy, engineering and many more.The requirement will be to show how research will add to the evidence-base and will be of relevance to the UK health system. Applications, which will be managed through applying universities, are welcomed from clinical and non-clinical professional backgrounds and from a wide range of disciplines.
