These allow clinicians at varying degrees of specialisation the opportunity to develop their academic skills alongside clinical training.
Academic Clinical Fellowships support NHS doctors undertaking specialty training to also train as academic researchers, granting them 25 per cent of their time to undertake research, while undertaking specialist clinical training for the remaining 75 per cent of their time.
Academic Clinical Lectureships are aimed at those who are advanced in their specialty training. These offer clinicians the opportunity to split their time evenly between research and further specialist training.
