Clinician scientist awards

These awards provide doctors with the opportunity to develop an independent research career so they can lead research and supervise other researchers.

It also enables doctors to apply for a senior fellowship award or for a university senior lecturer appointment.

Clinician scientist awards are for senior trainees who are at the end of their training or recently appointed consultants who have an established and successful research track record. The trainee will usually gain a certificate completion of training (CCT) before the award is completed. The awards usually last for four to five years.
