The Health Sciences Doctoral Training Centre (HSDTC) provides training, development and careers support for the 1,700+ doctoral research students in the four Health Faculties at King’s College London, irrespective of funding stream. The HSDTC:

  • is structured around seven interdisciplinary research themes;
  • delivers a bespoke programme of training in research methods & skills, communication & impact, and careers & employability;
  • encourages collaboration and cohort building across the Health Faculties, via funding opportunities, networking events, a buddy scheme, and more.

All doctoral research students in the Health Faculties at King's are automatically registered with the HSDTC, and receive a monthly newsletter which highlights upcoming workshops, events, and other opportunities; please let us know if you are not receiving your newsletter!

Follow us on Twitter @Kings_HSDTC, and if you have any concerns, feedback or suggestions for training or development activities, please feel free to email us at hs-dtc@kcl.ac.uk.
