Our profession-specific mentors

We have leading clinical academics as profession-specific lead mentors, who have excellent links with their respective professional colleges and networks. Where primary or secondary supervisors are not from the same profession as the PhD scholar, scholars will have a mentor from their own profession. These mentors sign-off any profession-specific educational reports, identify leadership opportunities for PhD scholars within their profession, and support scholars to network into profession-specific research groups/panels. Applicants may wish to contact mentors from their own professional backgrounds in helping them develop their application/proposals.
