Integrated Academic Training Programme

Academic Clinical Fellowships (ACF) and Clinical Lectureships (CL) are open to doctors and dentists. They are specialty training posts which incorporate protected time for research in order to enable pursuit of an academic clinical career.  Appointments to these posts are made through selected Academic Programmes that have been allocated to university/NHS trust/deanery partnerships.

In-Practice Fellowships (IPF) offer fully qualified General Practitioners (GPs) and General Dental Practitioners (GDPs) the opportunity to pursue a pre-doctoral level academic qualification and prepare an application for a Doctoral Fellowship.

The Clinician Scientist (CS) award is a post-doctoral level award, open to researchers working in medicine and dentistry who are capable of leading research in their discipline.  The awards last up to five years and cover salary, research, training and development costs.
