Succeeding the highly successful MD/PhD/MSc Programme, the aim of the Clinical Research Fellowship is to support suitably qualified MD, PhD, and MSc candidates to pursue research, full- or part-time, in the field of paediatric medicine. By supporting excellent new investigators, the NCRC aims to develop, consolidate and sustain high quality clinical research in key areas of child health.

The Clinical Research Fellowship is aimed at clinicians, nurses, and allied health professionals working in paediatrics. It is designed to offer a range of options to encourage research across a broad spectrum of clinical activities. These awards aim to inculcate and foster research as part of clinical practice, and to ensure that research is directly relevant to the sick child.

The next round of the Clinical Research Fellowship will be announced via our website and Twitter.
