City University London contributes to London Deanery's academic induction
Dr Yannis Pappas, Programme Director of the MSc in Health Services Research in the School of Health Sciences, has been invited to contribute to the London Deanery's induction programme for academic GPs. City will join a select list of leading universities that contribute to these courses.
The London Deanery is a clinically-led organisation with responsibility for around 12,500 doctors and dentists in foundation, core and higher specialty training programmes as well as offering significant support for those in established practice.
Academic GPs enrol in an induction programme where they receive intensive training in research methods, literature reviews, writing for publication and for funding applications. Each of London's medical schools has two academic GPs attached to them.
Dr Pappas said: "Our inclusion as a contributor on this prestigious training programme is a clear indication of the reputation of School of Health Sciences at City within the academic medical community in London. I am delighted to continue delivering training for ST4 doctors. It is a unique honour for City University as we will be the only non-medical school to contribute to these courses."
Professor Stanton Newman, Dean of the School of Health Sciences said: "The involvement with the Deanery's induction programmes for academic GPs is significant recognition for the work of both the School and Dr Yannis Pappas. The School has a continuing commitment to train and recruit research excellent academics and invest in state of the art facilities to support research. Yannis has been an excellent addition to the faculty here and brings with him a reputation for innovative research and teaching."
