Doctoral studentships, University of Leicester

The Department of Health Sciences has been awarded funding by the Health Foundation for three prestigious doctoral fellowships in the field of improvement science in healthcare. These fellowships are intended to provide doctoral training - including development in research, leadership, and wider professional skills - to individuals demonstrating outstanding promise. The University of Leicester is one of only eight leading centres in the UK chosen to host these fellowships by the Health Foundation, an independent charitable foundation that works to continuously improve the quality of healthcare in the UK. Fellows will have access to world-leading scholars in the social and clinical sciences to support their development.
The fellowships will provide tax-free stipends of up to £23,000 per annum for three years and full tuition fees. Fellows will be expected to complete a self-contained project focused on patient safety or quality in healthcare. An indicative choice of research projects that might be undertaken will be released next week. Fellows will enjoy a programme of personal and professional development that will include bespoke doctoral-level training, opportunities for networking with leading thinkers in the field, and funding to attend conferences.
