NIHR Academic Clinical Fellow (ACF) in Intensive Care Medicine

Why do intensive care medicine anywhere else when you can do it at one of the best universities in the world?

We are delighted to offer a NIHR Academic Clinical Fellow in Intensive Care Medicine at Cambridge. We are looking for the UK’s brightest and best and can accommodate trainees from any ICU partner speciality as well as single-speciality trainees.

From the NIHR recruitment website: NIHR Academic Clinical Fellowships are specialty training posts that incorporate academic training.  NIHR Academic Clinical Fellows (ACFs) spend 75% of their time undertaking specialist clinical training and 25% undertaking research or educationalist training and are only available to medically qualified candidates and are aimed at those who, at the early stages of their specialty training, show outstanding potential for a career in academic medicine or dentistry. The duration of an ACF is for a maximum of 3 years (4 years for GPs). During this time, alongside clinical training, ACFs will be able to develop their academic skills and be supported in preparing an application for a Research Training Fellowship (to undertake a higher research degree) or an application for a place on an educational programme (leading to a higher degree). Success in these applications is defined as the end point of an ACF.

2016 NIHR ACF recruitment is now open. Please contact Dr Charlotte Summers (@charlot_summers) for further information and informal discussion.
