Academic Clinical Fellows
UCL is proud to have one of the largest cohorts of National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) trainees in the UK. We have approximately 100 NIHR Academic Clinical Fellows and 50 NIHR Clinical Lecturers in posts across UCL and UCL Partners Academic Health Sciences System.
Every trainee has a clinical and an academic supervisor and is provided with a £1,000 per annum NIHR training bursary. Trainees are provided with bespoke clinical and academic training appropriate for their specialty and research interests, and in addition have access to funding for an Masters course at UCL.
Our Academic Clinical Fellowship schemes have an overall success rate of approximately 85% over the last five years in securing peer-reviewed internationally competitive research funding to continue their clinical academic careers.
