Workshops about the HEE/NIHR Integrated Clinical Academic (ICA) Programme

We’re delighted to share news about a series of workshops being organised by Hazel Roddam, Reader in Allied Health Practice and her team at the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) about the Integrated Clinical Academic (ICA) Programme.

Held before the end of March, there will be two workshops per region; one for prospective applicants to the ICA programme and another for clinical team leads and managers. The workshops will be tailored to each audience and will share information about the programme, but will also provide an opportunity to actively collect feedback, experiences and opinions to help us to consider any other factors that could better support this agenda.

Please find flyers for each region on our website
