Common Core List

The Common Core List identifies shared attributes for NHS scientists, across four broad domains: scientific practice; leadership and management; safety and improvement; the future. It does not specify the format, level or content of development within the domains. Instead, it challenges trainees to consider their wider development as a future scientist-leader.
