Announcement of NHS Scotland Academy (NHSSA) Accelerated Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS) Registration Engagement Events

New Programme Announcement

NHS Scotland Academy (NHSSA) have announced the recent approval of the new Accelerated Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS) Registration Training Portfolio Programme, to support the preparation of biomedical science graduates from non-applied IBMS-accredited degree programmes (i.e. those without a clinical placement) to complete the IBMS Registration Training Portfolio (IBMS RTP). It is the first national (non-applied) Biomedical Scientist training programme in Scotland and has the endorsement of the IBMS.  

The programme will facilitate the accelerated completion of the IBMS RTP by supporting candidates to demonstrate their knowledge, skills, and competence at the appropriate level to successfully apply to register with the HCPC as a Biomedical Scientist. NHSSA will work in partnership with the designated Training Officer/Training Manager in the candidate’s own IBMS approved training laboratories to support a positive, quality-assured learning experience.
