First class research opportunities
The North East and North Cumbria is recognised as a hub for delivering first-class research across the breadth of basic science discovery through translational research to clinical trials and applied health research.
Our region is recognised as a leader in the delivery of formal, high quality research training and has dedicated integrated clinical academic training pathways. For those trainees who decide that the research should be a larger part of their training our programmes offer out of programme research opportunities, doctoral and post-doctoral fellowships.
The region is a national role model for trainee led research developing both career researchers and trainees who contribute to a research ready workforce.
Research and evidence-based medicine are part of the day to day professional roles of doctors and dentists and therefore is integrated in to training.
The ‘Greenshoots’ scheme provides the opportunity to support and develop motivated consultants, nurses, midwives and allied health professions to become Principal Investigators. Aside from the opportunity to gain a research qualification (through the Postgraduate Certificate in Clinical Research), the scheme ensures mentorship from experienced colleagues.
