Preparatory research training

Our NIHR funded Mental Health Biomedical Research Preparatory Clinician Fellowships offer healthcare professionals an opportunity to obtain the necessary research track record, skills and support to compete for externally funded three year Clinician Training Fellowships with NIHR, MRC, Wellcome or other funder.
