All MS MasterClass attendees carry out a workplace project as a key part of the course. This will be on an issue they choose in the area that they work, from service development to epidemiology, audit to patient management.

All delegates present their project to their course peers and the teaching faculty, who jointly choose a winner and a runner up for the year. These people are presented with an award and their projects are highlighted on our website.

All projects are added to our resources area online where the valuable learning can be shared and used more widely. We’d love you to take a look – our Snapshots are a great place to start if you’re looking for something quickly digestible.
