The ACFs will work on clinical firms similar to equivalent seniority trainees. They will have 25% time for academic training and research (a total of 9 months over the 3 year period). In addition, they attend a generic training programme in academic medicine.
Further details on ACFs available on the NIHR website.
ACFs have access to an annual travel bursary of £1,000 per financial year (August to July). For details please see Bursaries.
ACFs are encouraged to obtain postgraduate qualifications in research skills. QMUL ACFs have access to funding towards the QMUL PGCert in Clinical Research. For more information please see Research Education Fund.
ACF posts have a maximum duration of three years, or four years for GPs. During this time, alongside clinical training, ACFs will be able to develop their academic skills and be supported in preparing an application for a research training fellowship (to undertake a higher research degree). Success in these applications is defined as the endpoint of an ACF. The uptake of a fellowship, either immediately, or at a later date is considered to be a successful ACF outcome.
