The NIHR Clinical Lectureship is one phase of the Integrated Academic Training Pathway recommended in the report “Medically- and dentally-qualified academic staff: Recommendations for training the researchers and educators of the future”. This report was produced by a joint Sub-Committee of the UK Clinical Research Collaboration (UKCRC) and the NHS Modernising Medical Careers (MMC) to recommend initiatives that integrate the development of academic skills with each of the key stages of a clinician’s career.
Clinical Lectureships represent the second substantive phase of integrated clinical and academic training, which is intended to follow on from the Academic Clinical Fellowship phase. Clinical Lectureships are intended for those who can demonstrate outstanding potential through success at doctoral research and who show further potential for development as a clinical academic in research and/or education.
Clinical Lecturers are expected to undertake a PGCert in Medical Education.
Clinical Lectureships are available to trainees that have made satisfactory progress in both academic and clinical training and have completed a higher research degree. Trainees will have completed their Foundation Training and in most cases made substantial progress in their specialist training. GPs will have completed their vocational training. Exceptional candidates who are nearing the end of their vocational training may be considered.
Details of any available posts currently recruiting can be found at HR Job Search.
The NIHR provides £1,000 per financial year per trainee to Warwick. Warwick is responsible for managing the bursary fund and approving expenditure against the bursary. The bursary cannot be used for consumables and can be used for attending academic meetings and conferences that are an important part of your training.
Once you have receipts and wish to reclaim funds please use the online expense system Concur to submit your request.
You will undergo Annual Review of Competence Progression with your Clinical and Academic Supervisor. The latest version of the Gold Guide - A Reference Guide for Postgraduate Specialty Training in the UK - includes the relevant forms and lots of general information. The Report on Academic Trainee's Progress form should be completed a month in advance of the ARCP meeting.
Each summer you will also be asked to complete an Output Report detailing your academic related achievements over the past year (such as publications, grants awarded) to help us evaluate individual and programme success.
