According to national midwifery-specific and healthcare profession strategy, embedding research into the professions, including creating researcher leaders, is a priority. Evidence shows that this provides benefit for the people we care for, the employing organisation, and the individual employee. However, developing the knowledge to undertake or lead research can seem overwhelming. The Professional Doctorate is one pathway available to support people in the development of research knowledge and skills. This five-year part time course is completed alongside clinical work. Initial taught content develops knowledge and skills, before leading on to completion of independent research, with appropriate supervision throughout.
