New healthcare education centre officially opened

Identifying and solving problems with healthcare training and provision is one of the focuses of a new research group at the University of Aberdeen.

Led by Professor Jennifer Cleland, the Centre for Healthcare Education Research and Innovation (CHERI) specialises in education and training for healthcare professionals and was officially launched on Wednesday (31 May) at the Suttie Centre.

The range of research carried out by CHERI is wide -from informing which students are admitted to medical school and ensuring they are taught the most relevant topics, to identifying and proposing solutions to training gaps and workflow tension within the health care systems.

The official opening was attended by Malcolm Wright, Chief Executive of NHS Grampian; Professor Stewart Irvine, Director of Medicine for NHS Education for Scotland; Dr Erik Driessen of Maastricht University and Professor Sir Ian Diamond, Principal and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Aberdeen.

Professor Cleland said:  “Our vision is to achieve a global reputation for academic excellence in healthcare education research, by supporting high-quality, important research focusing on relevant issues, and developing tomorrow’s researchers. Our mission is local relevance, global excellence. 

“Drawing on nearly 20 years of expertise in healthcare education research and innovation at the University of Aberdeen, CHERI provides a stimulating environment for those who are passionate about progressing healthcare education through research and innovation.”
