Academic Clinical Fellowships

Applications for round one of the Academic Clinical Fellowship (ACF) programmes were invited by the UK Clinical Research Collaboration (UK CRC) in 2005.  Since then there have been two further rounds, with round two focussing upon specific clinical areas and round three mapping to the Biomedical Research Centres (of which Newcastle is the NIHR Newcastle Biomedical Research Centre in Ageing & Chronic Disease).

Academic Clinical Fellowship's combine 25% academic training with 75% clinical training, these posts are now centrally funded and are specialty specific.  The principal end point of these posts is that individuals will put together an externally funded fellowship leading to a higher degree (PhD/MD).  The posts are currently competency based. 

In Newcastle there are eighteen programmes in a variety of different disciplines.
