INTALECA represents an aspirational new approach to identifying and developing outstanding talent in nursing and allied health. It takes a proactive stance in seeking out nursing and therapy students demonstrating high academic potential very early in their career, with the aim of producing a class of doctorally - qualified graduates within 5-6 years of initial registration as health professionals.
INTALECA is proudly supported by Health Education England Thames Valley and OxINMAHR.
Students invited to join the program will enter into an exciting clinical academic pathway, and be supported to obtain the required leadership and research skills to meet the challenges that lie ahead for the NHS, and for the wider health care context. They will gain primary research experience, potentially to the doctoral level alongside at least five years of clinical experience. Furthermore, students will be involved in the valuable establishment of peer-reviewed publications and leadership portfolios throughout the duration of their programme.
