Academic Surgical and Perioperative Medicine Unit
This unit is an innovative development in ELHT. This trust has always been involved in clinical research and education. The research activities range from:
- case histories
- longitudinal observational studies
- multi-centre cohort studies
This unit is the next stage in the development of an integrated approach to research, course development and the establishment of formal Academic Clinical Fellows. The development of national and regional training courses will be a key aspiration for the future. There will be a parallel development of increasing links with our university partners in our journey from teaching hospital to university hospital status. This academic unit should bring the benefits of improved health care through motivated, enthusiastic clinicians working within multidisciplinary teams at the forefront of medical/surgical innovation. This will cement our status as one of the key NHS hospital trusts in the North West of England.
