Pre-doctoral Clinical Academic Fellowships information session

Waterloo Bridge Wing, Franklin Wilkins Building, Waterloo Campus, London

6 Feb
Denmark Hill Kings College Hospital
King's College Hospital at Denmark Hill Campus

The HEE/NIHR Pre-doctoral Clinical Academic Fellowship (PCAF) offers nurses, midwifes and other allied health professionals a fully funded fellowship during which they can gain the research skills and undertake preliminary work needed to apply for a funded PhD.

There is an annual call for applications for this programme and the next one is anticipated in February 2020.

During the fellowship period the student has the option to continue working half of their time in their NHS role over two years, or can take up the fellowship full time for one year. Fellows are paid at their existing NHS salary level.

The Florence Nightingale Faculty of Nursing, Midwifery & Palliative Care (NMPC) is able to offer a structured programme of research training and support that would comprise the academic component of the PCAF. We can also support you to prepare a fundable PhD proposal as an output of the PCAF.

Last year the majority of candidates who applied for the PCAF with our support were successful.

Nurses, midwives, other allied health professionals, clinical leaders, managers and education and training leads from King’s Health Partners and elsewhere are welcome to find out more at our workshop. We'll explain about the PCAF programme and how we can support potential PCAF fellows through the application process and beyond.

During the workshop you will:

  • Learn about the process of submitting a PCAF application
  • Find out what are the ingredients for a successful application
  • Hear from current PCAF fellows
  • Find out about the Faculty research themes and interests of our research active staff

The workshop will be followed by a lunch to which all NMPC academic and research staff are invited. This is an opportunity for people to network, identify possible PCAF supervisors, and explore research ideas in an informal setting.

The workshop will run from 10.00-12.45, followed by lunch from 12.45-13.30.
