"I found the programme particularly useful in building my confidence not only as a GPN but as a NQN too. The course offered me learning & training opportunities and helped me build on my foundation of knowledge. I now feel equipped to further enhance in my role to more senior positions within primary care. My mentor was a key support system throughout the programme."

This is a development opportunity for healthcare professionals to develop skills in population health. The fellowship is targeted to mid-career professionals providing NHS services (AfC band 6 and above, or equivalent; dentists-in-training; doctors-in-training post-FY2 and their SAS equivalent). The aim of the fellowship is to develop a network of clinicians from a non-population health background with population health skills to benefit place-based healthcare systems across England.
