The University of Brighton receives £50,000 funding for Integrated Clinical Academic Programme 2015-16

The University of Brighton is once again the sole provider for the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR)/Health Education Kent, Surrey and Sussex (HE KSS) Integrated Clinical Academic Programme for 2015-16.

This programme is intended to prepare applicants to:

  • apply for an NIHR award (MRes, Clinical Doctoral Research Fellowship, Clinical Lectureship or Senior Clinical Lectureship (see details of the funding programmes), or
  • provide an opportunity for applicants (with an MRes or Doctorate qualification) to work in a research group (as a normal member or principal investigator) that submits an application for an external research funding award.

We are thrilled to be awarded this funding again. It will help us to provide research training and development opportunities for local practitioners and to develop research capacity and capability of a range of health practitioners in Kent, Surrey and Sussex, which in turn will lead to enhanced patient care.

Successful interns will be offered a bespoke programme of learning and development, which will be dependent on their individual needs. A successful intern will be awarded funding from HE KSS to support backfill cost, tuition fees and other reasonable expenses.
