The duration of an ACF will be for a maximum of 3 years or 4 years in General Practice. During this time the trainee combines clinical specialty or core training with academic training which is geared to competing for a training fellowship.
When trainees successfully obtain a fellowship, they normally spend 3 years outside of their clinical programme in Out of Programme Research (OOPR) working towards the completion of an MD or PhD (or equivalent).
On completion of a training fellowship, they will return to the clinical programme and at an appropriate point may competitively apply for a Clinical Lectureship provided that appropriate academic and clinical competences have been obtained or continue in clinical training.
Recruitment to Academic Clinical Fellowship posts commencing in February 2018 will follow the local round 3 timeline below*. Please check each advert for any variations on the below dates.
