Welcome to the RCBC Wales website. As grant holder it is my privilege to lead this exciting initiative. RCBC Wales was established in 2006 as a collaboration between 6 universities in
Wales. The purpose of the collaboration is to increase research capacity in nursing/midwifery and the allied health professions in Wales. It does this through a number of
schemes. These include:
We have just completed recruitment for the latest round of PhD Fellowships. As part of the latest recruitment round we have introduced a new studentship scheme – Early Career
Fellowships. This scheme provides part-time PhD Fellowships for nursing and allied health professionals who have recently qualified. This scheme is particularly exciting because
it enables the recently graduated professional to undertake a PhD whilst also gaining clinical experience.
All members of the RCBC scheme join the Community of Scholars. The Community of Scholars provides a mechanism for adding value to the studentships. It provides mentorship and master
classes in research methods and research leadership. The Community of Scholars is an integral part of the scheme and highly valued by fellows.
RCBC is very proud of its fellows and their achievements.
