Nurse and AHP educational training bursaries

The educational training bursaries aim to promote awareness and understanding of arthritis and related musculoskeletal diseases among allied health professionals through research, practical experience, presentation of research, and formal education in rheumatology. 

Funding is offered towards the costs of attending either a short training/diploma course or modules from a taught MSc programme OR a full MSc course or taught/professional doctorate.  Courses should have clear musculoskeletal content and be based in the UK.  The full course deadline is 4 July 2012, and the short course deadline is 18 July 2012.  For details of how to apply for the funding please visit the ARUK website here.
