Shuri Bursaries for Faculty of Clinical Informatics Membership

In 2020 we awarded bursaries to 25 members to join the FCI. They are an inspiring group of digital innovators and are our first cohort of Shuri Fellows. For updates on future bursaries please fill in our membership form on our home page.

As the first NHS and care network of BAME women in digital health, the Shuri Network is committed to increasing safety, promoting difference and diversity in digital health, challenging the system to take action and supporting BAME women to succeed in their careers.

The Faculty of Clinical Informatics aims to support, mobilise and act as an advocate for clinical informaticians in order to ensure safe, effective and efficient health and social care to the public. The Faculty recognises the vital role of promoting equality and diversity in order to attract clinical informaticians from all backgrounds.

Given the synergy in goals, The Shuri Network and the Faculty of Clinical Informatics are pleased to announce a joint venture to encourage and facilitate BAME women in applying to the Faculty of Clinical Informatics. The Shuri Network will provide 15 BAME women with a bursary to cover the cost of a year’s membership of the Faculty of Clinical Informatics.

To be eligible for the bursary, you must:
• be (or identify as) a female and be from a BAME background
• be a UK resident
• be a member of the Shuri Network
• currently work in the field of digital health and social care or use technology in your daily work within health and social care
