The scheme will be subject to competitive entry and will nurture a cadre of research-led clinical academics capable of going on to lead development in their discipline by providing the opportunity to undertake a PhD.
The scheme is open to individuals training in, or seeking to train in, all disciplines in medicine (including surgical disciplines, general practice, public health medicine etc) or dentistry, whether in primary or secondary care.
