RCP and Clinical Research Network research awards

The Royal College of Physicians (RCP) and Clinical Research Network research awards scheme recognises outstanding contributions of NHS clinicians to the conduct of National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Clinical Research Network Portfolio research studies.

About

The RCP and the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) are pleased to again offer 10 awards – five awards for consultants and five for trainees – to recognise NHS clinicians contributing to NIHR Clinical Research Network Portfolio research studies.

Since its inception in 2006, the NIHR has significantly increased the scale of clinical research in the NHS, particularly through the NIHR Clinical Research Network. The enthusiastic engagement of NHS physicians and trainees is an essential condition for sustaining and building on this success, particularly given the many competing demands on clinicians’ time and resources.

Eligibility

Applicants must be NHS clinicians (clinical academics are not eligible) and a member of the RCP.

How to apply

Full details of the research awards and how to apply can be found at the National Institute for Health Research.

The closing date for applications is midnight, 2 July 2017.
