NIHR / HEE Clinical Academic Training Programme for Nurses, Midwives and Allied Health Professionals

The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) and Health Education England (HEE) are pleased to announce the launch of a further round of the NIHR / HEE Clinical Doctoral Research Fellowship scheme. This scheme, managed by the NIHR Trainees Coordinating Centre, is designed to support nurses, midwives and allied health professionals to develop careers which combine research and continued clinical practice in support of the NHS.

This fellowship scheme is aimed at those graduate nurses, midwives, allied health professionals and, in 2014, pharmacists who work in England and would like to obtain a PhD by research whilst still developing their clinical skills. Applicants must have at least 1 year’s experience of practice since graduating and have sufficient research experience or training to undertake a PhD.

A Clinical Doctoral Research Fellowship will fund the salary costs of the award holder, their PhD tuition fees, and the costs of an appropriate research project and training and development programme.

Applicants must hold current registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council, the Health and Care Professionals Council or the General Pharmaceutical Council at the point of award.

Further information and instructions for applicants are available on the website of the NIHR Trainees Coordinating Centre (NIHR TCC) at http://www.nihrtcc.nhs.uk/cat/cdrf

Applications must be received by the NIHR TCC by 1.00 pm on 30th April 2014
