My 10 days as a visiting scholar at the DHI

I am a Canadian student at the Hochschule Bonn-Rhein-Sieg in Germany and I’m currently finishing up a two year masters program in biomedical sciences with my thesis. Throughout my studies, I became really interested in medical devices and bringing them into healthcare settings. I reached out to the DHI for my thesis research because I found the devices and projects they're involved in to be extremely interesting and progressive.

Career Pathways in Scotland’s Digital Health sector

In 2018 the DHI, in collaboration with Skills Development Scotland (SDS), released a comprehensive review and analysis of the digital health sector and its skills issues in Scotland. As part of this review the DHI developed a series of recommendations to help prepare people for work in the digital health and care sector. To help raise the profile of the sector in Scotland it was recommended that defined career profiles and pathways should be created to attract and retain staff in the sector. The DHI, working with SDS, identified the 6 most sought-after job categories in Scotland’s digital health and care sector and carried out a series of interviews to record the career histories of people in the field, and elucidate the skills requirements for each category. The six categories were as follows: software engineer/developer product owner software implementation facilitator cyber security specialist knowledge engineer health data analyst Some of these categories already have fairly well-established educational pathways, but graduates do not find their way into jobs in the health and care sector; some categories require dedicated job roles to be created to meet the needs of health and care sector, others the creation of CPD opportunities for reskilling or upskilling staff to take up the roles. Some categories suggest the need for early career pathways to be developed for people to enter a route to develop into these complex roles. We are inviting you to a workshop to help develop education and career pathways for these categories and discuss where training opportunities lie or can be introduced to help produce more skilled staff to enter into these roles. The workshop will result in a number of recommendations for educational and career pathways to be presented in our final report. February workshop The meet-up will take place on 27th February in the City Observatory, Technology and Innovation Centre, University of Strathclyde at 12.15-15.30. Lunch will be provided with coffee and tea. We are inviting you to attend the workshop as someone who has relevant insights into the questions we wish to explore at the workshop, or as a representative of an organisation, who has a stake in this question. We have only a limited number of places available, so we recommend you reserve your place via Eventbrite asap. If you are not able to join us on the 27th Feb, please let us know as soon as possible, and suggest a suitable colleague from your organisation to replace you. Looking forward to seeing you on the 27th February!
