Posted : April 1, 2022 - /

FEDIP invites future digital leaders to apply for the new “35 under 35” bursary programme for the 2022 Digital Health Summer Schools.

The “35 under 35” programme has been created to help identify, promote and support future digital leaders and future talent in the UK health informatics and digital health sector.

As part of the FEDIP Charter, FEDIP has pledged to demonstrate our commitment to success through diversity by supporting broad and inclusive pathways into the health and care informatics profession by working with the professional bodies and with employers. By encouraging applications from under 35s, and nominations from those wishing to support their colleagues, we hope to open an inclusive pathway into future leadership roles.

The programme has been launched as part of the ‘Year of the Digital Profession’, which seeks to encourage the growth and maturity of the digital professions, to support the building of specialist skills and to support organisations to deliver sustainable digital transformation.

The bursary will cover a place of the Digital Health Networks Summer Schools and one-year membership of a FEDIP Member Body, which comprise of the following Professional Bodies:

  • Association of Professional Healthcare Analysts (AphA)
  • The Chartered Institute for IT (BCS)
  • The Chartered Library and Information Association (CILIP)
  • Institute of Health Records and Information Management (IHRIM)
  • The Faculty of Clinical Informatics (FCI)
  • Society for innovation, technology and modernisation (SOCITM)

The Digital Health Summer Schools is an NHS IT leadership event that will run in-person 14-15 July, 2022, at the University of York.

If you are an aspiring digital health leader, the summer school will provide you with education, opportunities to network, exchanges on best practices and CPD accredited content.
