Abstract

This study was designed to investigate the experiences of new lecturers in higher education in the UK in the professional fields of nursing, midwifery and allied health professions (occupational therapists, physiotherapists, diagnostic radiographers and therapeutic radiographers). The small body of existing research suggested that the transition for these practioners as they become lecturers in higher education is challenging and that current forms of support during induction are not always effective. This study asks how new health care professionals lecturers experience their transition from clinical to academic roles. It focuses on the first five years of experience after appointment to higher education and aims to inform strategies for academic induction.
