Watch a recording of this Digital Health webinar.

On 6 May 2022 we partnered with Digital Health Events on a webinar bringing you an overview of the NHS Digital Academy and how it’s evolving and expanding to offer learning programmes not just to senior leaders, but to support change leaders in the earlier stages of their career and in line with professional needs.

This included a spotlight on the Yale Digital Futures and Topol Digital Fellowship programmes and a chance for participants to meet alumni from these programmes and hear about their experiences, what they’ve gained and how their participation has benefitted their organisations and ultimately, the patients that they care for.

  • Interested in finding out more about current and future offerings from the NHS Digital Academy
  • Thinking about the next step in your digital career and looking for learning to support it
  • Want to hear about real-life digital transformation projects from the people delivering them
