NHIP Academy is a community of clinicians,
practitioners, and methodologists across all career stages.


NHIP Academy Fellows Forum


The Fellows Forum is our peer-to-peer support network. The forum is for clinicians, practitioners and methodologists who are, or aspire to be, on an academic pathway. You do not need to be currently or previously in receipt of a Fellowship, and we welcome new members to join our Forum events.

The Forum offers an engaging, interactive programme of events to share best practice and to network. The events will focus on topics driven by researchers and will take place regularly. For more information, please visit here.

Meet our Community

The NHIP Academy community spans a broad range researchers, each at different stages of their research career journey.

You can meet some of our community here:


Newcastle Academic Primary and Community Care Unit (NAPCCU)

At NHIP Academy we host and support the work of the new  Newcastle Academic Primary and Community Care Unit (NAPCCU). This unit brings together researchers and educators with an interest in primary and community care based health research.

To find out about the APCCU and the research, teaching and fellowship opportunities the unit can help support please contact nhip.academy@ncl.ac.uk

Regional PCAF Community

PCAF is the NIHR Pre-doctoral Clinical and Practitioner Academic Fellowship, a national scheme which equips early career researchers with the skills and experience to access doctoral level funding.

There are a growing number of colleagues across the region who are either working towards a PCAF application, are doing a PCAF currently, or are previous PCAF awardees.  The Regional PCAF Community is for colleagues at any point on that pathway. We bring people together to support and encourage each other on their journey and we organise events which signpost and equip colleagues to take their next steps in research.



Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in Research

NHIP Academy is committed to fostering equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI). This includes supporting and celebrating diversity among our staff members.

We are also committed to nurturing collaborations with those passionate about advancing EDI in research.

We are developing an EDI Working Group with continuous feedback from planned EDI drop-in sessions throughout the year.

Should you wish to contact the team or get involved in EDI within the NHIP  Academy team, please contact: Nhip.academy@ncl.ac.uk
