We work with allied health professionals, nurses, midwives, pharmacists and healthcare scientists to build the future national and international research leaders. Our senior clinical academics have helped to develop key research capacity building initiatives, such as the HEE Internships and NIHR ICA Pathway.
We contribute to fellowship funding panels and directly mentor and supervise talented individuals across the clinical academic pathway. From internships and pre-doctoral awards to doctoral, post-doctoral and ultimately to professorial awards. This includes providing support to the regional PCAF Community, a helpful resource for anyone working towards, or undertaking, this pre-doctoral award.
Our health and care professionals have international reputations for leading cutting edge, interdisciplinary research and providing exciting training opportunities for colleagues to join established research teams. We’re committed to supporting clinicians across the training pathway and being flexible to each applicant’s needs.
