Information about funding the HSST now available

Tuesday, 18 April 2017

The Higher Specialist Scientist Training (HSST) is a five year programme which is available to registered and experienced clinical scientists, who wish to further their career and train to become a consultant clinical scientist.

Funding is available for each trainee in the form of a training allowance, which is for each of the five years of training. The allowance is expected to be used to cover items such as expenses and research project costs. Further guidance on funding for the HSST is available together with information about the Health Education England Silver Scientist Programme, which is a 30 day bespoke programme of development to support an application to the HSST.
