The Science and Culture of Sleep and Sleeplessness
Presented By: University College London
Co-chaired By: Kimberley Whitehead and Professor Matthew Beaumont
Wed 10 Jan 2018 from 11:15am - 9:00pm
Location: Free Word Centre, London, UK
Sleep is an enormous part of our lives and has fascinated scientists, artists and writers for centuries: Why do we sleep? And why do we sometimes struggle to sleep? Join us for a day of informal talks – with perspectives on sleep and sleeplessness from biologists, historians, artists, medics and cultural critics – and continued discussion over drinks in the evening.
The exam board expect portfolios to be presented in a specific format. This will be available below to download. All candidates are encouraged to use this information to ensure they are remaining 'on track' with their learning.
ANS are proud to launch two new standalone examinations. They offer greater flexibility in the training scheme while maintaining the same high standards appropriate for the professional body.
A mentor will be assigned to all applicants to provide support in the development of the portfolio (containing work-based evidence). This is followed by a final practical competency exam.
The two new exams will be for EEG and NCS/EP and are individually driven and arranged as required.
Considering supporting a trainee through the Scientist Training Programme (STP)?
The Modernising Scientific Careers (MSC) Scientist Training Programme (STP) is now well established and effectively provides a training and education framework across all HealthCare Science (HCS) professions. It combines work-based training with an academic qualification (MSc) from an accredited University.
Helpbook for Training Centres
Good quality training is important to all of us. It ensures that we get the best workforce for the future, highly skilled and prepared for professional practice and demonstrating the correct values and behaviours. It gives the trainee an effective and stimulating training experience.
The Objective Structured Final Assessment (OSFA) is a tool for assessing the practical skills that trainees are expected to have mastered just prior to registration as a Clinical Scientist. The content of the OSFA should reflect the tasks trainees complete, and the skills they use, on a routine basis in the workplace – both subject-specific and generic skills.
