Challenge Fund: funded projects
These projects are designed to support existing and new students of podiatry and therapeutic radiography, as part of the strategic interventions in health education disciplines programme.
Both these specialist disciplines have been identified as vulnerable because of decreasing recruitment and retention in higher education courses. Ensuring more students from diverse backgrounds choose to study and complete these courses will provide England with the next generation of healthcare professionals.
