Launch of our new Leadership Programme and internship scheme 2018

We are delighted to announce that Versus Arthritis has recently partnered with Ashridge Executive Education, part of Hult International (a top business School which specialises in working with third sector and NHS), to help us design and deliver a bespoke leadership programme for MSK Clinical Champions, consisting of multi-disciplinary health care professionals.

The main objective of the programme will be to drive improvement in MSK care for patients and carers across health systems by developing leaders of change. We are currently consulting, developing and designing this programme and anticipate that we will be able to tell you how you can apply for this exciting initiative in Spring of this year. Watch this space for further updates.
