NIHR Integrated Academic Training Programme
The UK Clinical Research Collaboration (UKCRC) is a partnership of organisations united by the shared aim of establishing the position of the UK as a world leader in clinical research by harnessing the power of the NHS. A joint sub-committee of UKCRC and the NHS Modernising Medical Careers (MMC) has addressed a fundamental element of this vision - the provision of clear, coherent and integrated training and career paths for medically and dentally qualified academic staff. Their report, 'Medically and Dentally qualified academic staff: Recommendations for training the researchers and educators of the future', makes recommendations for initiatives that integrate the development of academic skills with each of the key stages of a clinician's career.
Further Information on these initiatives is available through the following pages:
NIHR ACFs and CLs are appointed through selected Academic Programmes. These Programmes have been awarded to University/NHS Trust/Deanery partnerships via formula allocation and rounds of competition. Approximately 250 NIHR ACFs and 100 NIHR CLs are available annually for medics and a further 22 NIHR ACFs and 10 NIHR CLs are available annually for dentists.
