Summary:

Health Education England (HEE) and the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) have established an overarching Integrated Clinical Academic (ICA) Programme for nursing, midwifery, and allied health professionals (NMAHPs). This programme is intended to increase research capacity to improve health and healthcare, by developing people with the potential and aspiration to become leading clinical academics and independent researchers in the future.

We have received national funding to support a number of internships in the Thames Valley.     These awards support individuals who are early in their clinical academic career and will be delivered through the Oxford Institute of Nursing, Midwifery and Allied Health Research (OxINMAHR), Faculty of Health and Life Sciences at Oxford Brookes University (brookes.ac.uk/oxinmahr/).

The internships will provide an introduction to a range of concepts and approaches relating to applied health research aimed at supporting Nursing, Midwifery and Allied Health Professional interns to apply for an NIHR Pre-doctoral Clinical Academic Fellowship (PCAF); an NIHR Clinical Doctoral Research Fellowship (CDRF), and/or work within a research team that will submit a proposal for funding

It is important for successful interns to have support from their line manager. The objectives of the internship and future clinical academic aspirations should align with team/service clinical priorities and needs. Applications are particularly welcomed where the focus of the proposed research is in the following HEE priority areas: Improving the experience of people with dementia; Primary and community care; Compassionate care and the NHS Constitution; Urgent & Emergency care; Care for people with Intellectual Disabilities; Improving Patient Safety; Technology Enhanced Learning
