New guides on clinical academic careers launched

Two exciting new guides to support healthcare professionals to develop clinical academic careers have been launched.

The guides have been developed by NIHR with Health Education England (HEE) to provide information on the various awards available through our two organisations, how to apply for awards, and how the awards work in practice should applicants be successful.

The guides also include case studies from award holders who talk about their experiences and the impact holding an NIHR or HEE award has had on their career. Find out more.
