HEE Thames Valley Academic Clinical Fellow Recruitment 2020

Health Education England - Thames Valley has prestigious NIHR Academic Clinical Fellowships (ACFs) to offer as part of the NIHR Integrated Academic Training Pathway. The support and advancement of clinical academic careers is highly valued within Health Education England - Thames Valley.

In partnership with the University of Oxford, we have established Oxford University Clinical Academic Graduate School (OUCAGS) to support Academic Clinical Fellows and other clinical academics in training. Further information can be found at oucags.ox.ac.uk/.

Oxford’s world-leading biomedical and clinical research environment offers outstanding opportunities to combine comprehensive clinical, academic and research training for those with the ambition and motivation to shape the future of medicine. Our clinical academic training programmes are seeking highly motivated, enthusiastic applicants with the potential to excel in both their clinical and research training. Posts will commence in August/September/October 2020.


The timetable for Academic Clinical Fellowship Recruitment 2020 is as follows:

Applications open: Monday 7 October 2019 at 12 noon

Applications close: Monday 4 November 2019 at 12 noon

Shortlisting & interview window: 6 November 2019 to 20 December 2019

Initial offers out from: 6 January 2020

Hold deadline: 13 January 2020

The most up-to-date job descriptions and person specifications are available via the Oriel website.

ACF interview dates will be available on Oriel for each post.

Please note: for 2020, in addition to the academic interviews, candidates will be required to attend and pass a clinical interview for the specialty they are applying to for academic training, if appropriate. Offers made will therefore be conditional upon meeting the required standard in the clinical interview. Applicants who already hold a clinical NTN or DRN in the same specialty as their ACF application will not need to attend a clinical interview as they will already have met the required standard previously.
