Academic Recruitment.

Academic Clinical Fellowships (ACFs)

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.
