The Clinical Academic Training Programme is part of the DH strategy for building research capacity and capability within the non-medical professions. This work is sponsored by the Chief Officers for Nursing, Allied Health Professions and Clinical Scientists.

The Clinical Academic Research Training Programme supports graduate AHPs, nurses and midwives who are committed to developing a career that combines research and continued clinical practice. The programme integrates with and shares the goals of the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) and its aim to benefit patients, the NHS and improve clinical practice.

The Department of Health is hosting two day-long Clinical Academic Research Training days for AHPs, nurses and midwives, where current award holders and potential new recruits come together to share knowledge and experience preparing people and to support successful applications.

These events are open to those interested in research training, employers, current trainees and fellows and educationalists.
