Academic Clinical Fellows

Three students looking at a computer screen.

These posts allow medical and dental trainees to combine research training with clinical training ready to compete for a Research Training Fellowship leading to a PhD.

As an Academic Clinical Fellow, you are funded to spend 25% of your time over a period of up to three years (up to four years for GP trainees) in a formal programme of research preparation, research training and research activity, whilst continuing with your clinical training and achieving the required clinical competencies.

Posts are available in a range of disciplines. Core Medical Training posts will be based at University Hospital Birmingham Foundation Trust and at Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospital Trust. All will be following a general medicine rotation during the first 2 years before embarking on specialty training in the 3rd year.

Applications for our 2019 ACF posts will commence on Monday 8th October 2018, details of which will be found on the Workforce Deanery site.
