GP Clinical Academic Fellowships

GP Clinical Academic Fellowships are designed to help newly qualified GPs to gain an understanding of the challenges and opportunities of a clinical academic post in general practice. These fellowships provide protected time to enable practical experience of research through apprenticeship to established primary care research teams to gain the knowledge, skills, and confidence to compete for doctoral training fellowships.

The posts are designed to grow the clinical academic general practice leaders of the future.
