Investing in the future: a clinical training programme for miscarriage

Siobhan Quenby, Manjeet Shehmar, Tom Bourne

Tommy’s are helping to train the carers of the future, so that we can continue giving women the best pregnancy care possible.

At Tommy’s National Centre for Miscarriage Research, we want to invest in the future of miscarriage care and research. That is why we are supporting the next generation of healthcare professionals through training, to ensure that care gets better and better.            

We have pledged to train and mentor at least 20 midwives and 5 junior doctors by 2021, as well as giving continued medical education to NHS colleagues involved in early pregnancy care.

So far, the Tommy’s National Centre for Miscarriage Research has:                         

  • 2 PhD students working in Tommy’s projects
  • 11 junior doctors working in Tommy’s projects in Coventry and London

We continue to be involved with conferences all over the world, to learn from and share knowledge with others working in early pregnancy research. This year, all junior doctors involved met at the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists World Congress, where we also supported pre-conference workshops for 40 early pregnancy professionals.

To keep up our clinical impact, it is vital to educate the carers of the future so they can continue giving women the best possible care.
