Integrated Academic Training (NIHR IAT)

Queen Mary University of London's NIHR-funded Clinical Integrated Academic Training programme (NIHR IAT) enables medical and dental trainees to pursue academic research alongside their clinical training. Queen Mary and Barts Health NHS Trust work in partnership with Health Education North Central and East London to provide a continuous clinical and academic pathway for specialty trainees in either research or education.

Trainees join the programme at two stages related to their academic status, and are based in 30 specialities across the School of Medicine and Dentistry.

There are two types of integrated academic posts:

  1. Academic Clinical Fellows
  2. Clinical Lecturers
