“How research can inform workforce policy and Planning?”
A lecture by Professor Jen Cleland, John Simpson Chair of Medical Research, Aberdeen.

She moved to Aberdeen in 2000 for a split University : NHS Grampian post, working as a clinical psychologist in Liaison Psychiatry for 10 years. She moved to the University full-time in 2011.
She has been John Simpson Chair of Medical Research since 2011, and is Director of the Centre for Healthcare Education Research and Innovation, University of Aberdeen.
