Interdisciplinary skills development for medical humanities: an opportunity for early career researchers and postgraduates. Funded by the AHRC and led by Durham University’s Centre for Medical Humanities in collaboration with the Northern Network for Medical Humanities Research and the Wellcome Trust.

Discussions within the Centre for Medical Humanities at Durham University and the Northern Network for Medical Humanities Research have revealed potential barriers to successful career development for PhD students and early career researchers (ECRs) in the medical humanities. People can feel isolated in and by their individual departments and need more interaction with other fields to better develop cross-disciplinary knowledge and approaches. Interdisciplinary work is time consuming and multiplies the number of potential departments, Centres and conferences with which ECRs might wish to engage to further their career objectives. There is no comprehensive course that will allow ECRs in the medical humanities access to the range of skills, experiences and resources necessary to develop an interdisciplinary approach to research, or to enhance a range of skills that might prove attractive to a range of potential academic employers. The New Generations programme addressed these gaps.

After deliberating over the 57 applications received for the New Generations Programme, we were pleased to announce the following individuals as members of the Programme Cohort:
