Notice board

CAHPR launch the Directory of Professors

AHP Professors are often hidden within academic institutions so CAHPR are showcasing the UK’s AHP Professors in a new directory. Professors are key leaders and influences promoting and advancing AHP research and AHP research capacity. If you’re an Allied Health Professional and a UK based full Professor, we invite you to join this directory.

You can find out more, and join the Directory of Professors by completing this form. (Sorry we’re excluding visiting, associate and assistant professors.) 

We also seek to establish a snapshot picture of how diverse our AHP Professors community are. This data is anonymous and will be gathered on a separate survey.

Please complete this survey too. 



CAHPR sends congratulations to the College of Paramedics on being granted a Royal Charter.

Please follow this link for the CoP information about it.

Take your next research steps with CAHPR – Kathryn Jarvis

We got chatting with Kathryn Jarvis who was one of CAHPRs hub leads until the end of 2023. We asked her what she got out of the role and instead of making the article all about her, she made it all about you! Kathryn encourages you to take your next research steps with CAHPR.
