We funded these awards in partnership with NHS Trusts and universities in England with the aim to create a cohort of ‘new blood’ clinical senior lectureship posts. The awards are now being taken forward by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) and the Health Education England (HEE).

Senior Clinical Lectureship Awards for Nurses, Midwives, Allied Health Professionals and Healthcare Scientists

‌We worked with The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) and the Chief Nursing Officer (CNO) for England to run the Senior Clinical Lectureship Awards for Nurses, Midwives, Allied Health Professionals and Healthcare Scientists. The awards represent the pinnacle of the Clinical Academic Training Programme which supports individuals committed to developing a career combining research and clinical practice.

The Clinical Academic Training Programme was developed following the publication, in 2007, of the report 'Developing the best research professionals. Qualified graduate nurses: recommendations for preparing and supporting clinical academic nurses of the future' by the UK Clinical Research Collaboration Sub-committee for Nurses in Clinical Research.

We and the local NHS trusts offered funding for up to 12 posts through three annual rounds of awards. Each post runs for five years and has been taken up at any time between November and 31 July of the academic year following the award.

Round four (2013) nominations

The awards are now being taken forward by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) and the Health Education England (HEE). For further information, please visit the NIHR Training Coordinating Centre (TCC) website.

Clinical Senior Lectureship Awards for Clinical Medicine and Dentistry

Since 2006 we have supported clinical senior lectureship awards for clinical medicine and dentistry. We developed these awards with UK Clinical Research Collaboration (UKCRC), as part of its commitment to building an expert research workforce to support clinical research and education in the context of established clinical training pathways.

This scheme has now closed.
