Funding for these fellowships is available for this round only, with placements expected to start in 2017.

There are several opportunities available:

  • Secondments
  • Doctoral Research Fellowships
  • Post-Doctoral Fellowships

Applicants must be employees of the NHS or hold an NHS honorary contract to deliver clinical sessions or services to the NHS.
