Applications are now open for the 2017/18 intake of the Integrated Clinical Academic Programme Internship Scheme across the North region of Health Education England.

Co-ordinated by Sheffield Hallam University, the key components of the internship programme are:

  • a Clinical Academic Research Experience supported by supervision and research mentorship for 30 days.
  • an Educational Learning Package comprising of 4 days face to face learning and 4 days equivalent online distance learning.

By the end of the programme we hope that participants will have the confidence to apply their newly learned skills within their employing Trusts, become research champions, and consider a future clinical academic career to include formally accredited education programmes.

This can be either within the HEE/NIHR Integrated Clinical Academic Programme, or via other routes. Interns will also benefit from an enhanced ability to apply successfully for further formal research training.

Further details of the Internships Scheme, including case studies of previous participants is available on the Health Education England website
