England's first doctorate for healthcare educators is being launched next month at the University of Portsmouth.

England's first doctorate for healthcare educators is being launched next month at the University of Portsmouth.

The professional doctorate in healthcare science education (DHealthSciEd) will address the needs of healthcare professionals involved in teaching and education and is aimed specifically at nursing and medical staff.

While it is currently possible to get a professional doctorate in nursing, there are no such high level courses for nurse academics.

It is aimed at those in full time employment who already hold a masters qualification. However the university will also consider applicants with other relevant qualifications and experience.

The course costs £2,850 per annum, with the first cohort of students expected to start in October.

See this week's NT for more information.
