Manchester Academy for Healthcare Scientist Education (MAHSE)
MAHSE was formally established on 1 January 2012 as a partnership between the University of Manchester (UoM), Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU) and the University of Salford (UoS), as well as leading Healthcare Scientists (HCS) from partner Trusts. It has developed to include other universities that work together to deliver a range of Healthcare Scientist training programmes. MAHSE currently runs under the directorship of Professor Phil Padfield (UoM), and Deputy Director Carol Ainley (MMU) and is supported by a small team of administrative staff and eLearning Technologists. It is overseen by an Executive Board with senior representatives from each MAHSE Partner University as well as regional HCS networks, patient groups and the NHS. There is also a Stakeholder Board which meets annually and includes all Programme Directors as well as members of the Executive Board.
