Pre-doctoral Clinical and Practitioner Academic Fellowships virtual information session - 7 February 2022

Please note that this event has passed.


The HEE/NIHR Pre-doctoral Clinical and Practitioner 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.

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.

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
