Allied Health Professional Training

Newcastle University is an accredited training location providing high quality research training for specialty trainees in public health, general practice and other specialties. We have a strong track record of academic training opportunities for trainees (registrars) from a range of clinical specialties and allied health professionals – for example, medical students, foundation doctors, public health trainees (clinical and non-clinical), GP trainees, and trainees from rheumatology, orthopaedics, and ENT.

We support trainees undertaking a research/ academic placement as well as those on academic training routes. We also host and train academic clinical fellows and clinical lecturers in public health and general practice. We have successfully supported trainees in research funding and fellowships.

The Population Health Science Institute leads the NIHR School for Public Health Research and is part of the NIHR School for Primary Care Research. The Institute’s work is very broad ranging, encompassing public health, ageing, health inequalities, epidemiology, and methodologies. Trainees are encouraged to explore our site for information about our research themes.

We welcome enquiries from health professionals at any stage of their training, who are interested in undertaking research.

To discuss opportunities here, in the first instance please contact:
