Kent, Surrey and Sussex research internships

Funding is now available for the HEE and National Institute for Health Research Integrated Clinical Academic Programme (ICAP) 2018-19 across Kent, Surrey and Sussex.


Funding has been awarded to the University of Kent's Centre for Health Services Studies to enable up to eleven successful interns to receive a bespoke learning and development programme. We will award funding to support backfill cost, tuition fees and reasonable expenses. Available to a Non-Medical Applied Health Professionals, the ICAP is intended to prepare applicants to apply for a NIHR Pre-doctoral Clinical Academic Fellowship, and in the long-term apply for Clinical Doctoral Research Fellowship, Clinical Lectureship or Senior Clinical Lectureship.

The internship scheme will:

  • develop research and research capabilities throughout all levels of the NHS in order to enhance and diffuse evidence based practice
  • provide the opportunity to develop a network of clinical academics so that learning, best practice and innovation can be shared and disseminated
  • support the development of clinical skills as well as research skills
  • encourage research into areas related to HEE's Mandate or to education and training as a whole
  • offer an insight into a career in clinical academia and provide experience which would support applications for further formal research training.

More information

To discuss the programme and to request the University of Kent Application Form 2018-19 please email Dr Ferhana Hashem at F.Hashem@kent.ac.uk.

Closing date for applications: apply online and upload all supporting documentation to University of Kent by 5pm, Tuesday 28th August 2018.
