Healthcare Science postgraduate trainees - Common Core List
Our postgraduate scientist trainee cohort includes Pre-registration Clinical Scientists and Practitioner-level (graduate) staff undertaking advanced-practice scientist development. For Practitioners, we competitively select around 30 in-service Practitioner staff for NES awards annually to ensure that NHS Scotland has a pathway for able HCS Practitioners to progress to advanced scientific practice. Our postgraduate scientists cohort have a National Training Number and develop attributes on our Common Core List.

Our Common Core List (CCL) identifies shared attributes for NHS scientists, across four domains: scientific practice; leadership and management; safety and improvement; the future. CCL does not specify format, level or content of development within the domains. Instead, it challenges trainees to consider their wider development as a future scientist-leaders. Engagement with CCL is central for approval of NES postgraduate support.
