Launch of new Pre-doctoral Clinical Academic Fellowship

  Created on Tuesday, 24 Oct 2017. Posted in Funding

The Pre-doctoral Clinical Academic Fellowship (PCAF) scheme will support award holders to split their time equally between clinical service and academic training over a two year period. During this time, Fellows will undertake formal and informal clinical research training, designed around their unique training needs.  One of its many benefits is that it will allow protected time for participants to develop an application for PhD funding, with support from a named supervisor and mentor.

The PCAF scheme is anticipated to open for applications in February 2018 and will replace the current ICA Masters in Clinical Research Studentship scheme.
