Can you tell me more about the PRESS Project?

The PRS is motivated to optimise the engagement of student and newly qualified physiotherapists in research, We hope that in supporting students to become more research active through the PRESS project, we will provide them with improved confidence to share their research findings earlier in their careers. We hope this will support them to use skills they have already acquired as part of their university training, and build upon these further, to enable students and subsequently newly qualified physiotherapists, to become more involved in research and related projects at an earlier stage in their career.

The PRESS project has been made possible with support from the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP).

Deadline for applications: 28th February 2024. Successful applicants will be notified shortly after this deadline
