GP Clinical Academic Fellowships set to grow ‘future leaders’

19th April 2024

The GP Clinical Academic Fellowships are now open for applications

The fellowships are designed to help newly qualified GPs gain an understanding of the challenges and opportunities of a clinical academic post in general practice.

They provide protected time to enable practical experience of research through apprenticeship to established primary care research teams, allowing the gaining of knowledge, skills, and confidence to compete for doctoral training fellowships.

The posts are designed to grow the clinical academic general practice leaders of the future.

Deadline for submitting the application form is 6 May 2024 with more information also available in the link.

If this might be of interest, please get in touch with any of the participating contacts from the Universities of Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, or St Andrews below: 

NHS Research Scotland (NRS) Primary Care Network Co-Research Champion Prof Frances Mair said: “We believe that this is a great opportunity for newly qualified GPs to extend their learning while supporting excellence in research activity across Scotland.

“It is vital that we encourage and inspire research-led clinical academics who are capable of going on to lead development in their discipline. If that’s of interest, then please do get in touch with one of the participating contacts.”
