• Have you completed or nearly finished your STP training?
  • Have you considered pursuing a career as a clinical academic?
  • Do you want to develop your clinical academic research skills?

The HEE Clinical Academic Training Internship Programme offers the opportunity for health professionals with no research qualifications or research training to take the first step towards a clinical academic career.   The programme would be applicable to STP trainees once they have finished their training and are working in the NHS.

The internship includes a 5 day programme to increase your knowledge and understanding of the NHS research community and how you could develop your career in this area.  You will have an experienced research supervisor who will help you follow a personalised programme over a period of 35 days, and provide mentoring and supervision of your research project.    Your project will need to have a clear benefit for patients and the public, and it is encouraged to focus on one of HEE’s mandate requirements.

Funding is provided by Health Education England.  Payment of £7500 is made to the intern’s employer to allow release from duties and cover travel expenses.  A fee of £1000 is paid to the organisation hosting the intern to cover supervision costs.

Internships commence in January 2015 and must be completed by June 2015.
