Childs Trust Medical Research Foundation
Our emphasis is on educational excellence and boundary-pushing research work. Hospitals are human industries where the sick are treated and sent away as healthy as possible. We ensure to use our resources in order that the patient leave the hospital far improved from when they arrived. Towards this end we have painstakingly stitched together education, research and day-to-day hospital affairs in order to provide our students with adequate applied learning opportunities and give patients a chance to help others through themselves.
