GP Academic Clinical Fellows

The Primary Care Research Centre, a world-leading primary care research department and a member of the NIHR School for Primary Care Research, is keen to encourage medical students, clinical trainees and GPs in practice to choose academic primary care as a career option. We highlight opportunities for becoming involved in academic work through presentations to medical students, trainees and GPs about GP academic careers, and by hosting medical student research based study in depth projects, medical student summer placements, academic foundation year posts, academic clinical fellow posts, clinical lecturer posts and a research apprenticeship scheme for GPs in practice.

We have a named initial contact for enquires and match those interested in learning more to a mentor who will support them to consider options for becoming involved in primary care research. This may range from coming to see what we do and attending departmental seminars, to involvement in research projects and attending conferences, to applying for substantive funding and developing a tailored research and training programme. Our friendly supportive environment and wealth of primary care research experience and opportunities means that we can foster talent and help build the academic leaders of the future.
