Clinical Academic Internship Programme (CAIP)

Applications for the Autumn 2017 cohorts have now closed. The Autumn 2018 cohorts will be advertised in Spring next year.

What does the internship offer?

This is a 30 day programme that takes place over six months.

The programme is funded by Health Education England working in the West Midlands (HEE-WM) and is designed to act as a first step onto the HEE/National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Integrated Clinical Academic (ICA) Programme (ICAP) for non-medical healthcare professions.

  • A structured taught programme enabling interns to develop skills in the design and delivery of clinical research
  • Access to observational and practical placements within a research or academic environment
  • Optional funding to undertake a Masters in Research module
  • One to one mentorship from a clinical academic supervisor throughout the programme
  • A clinical academic portfolio to support learning during and after the programme
  • There are no programme fees and we provide a single payment grant to your employer for your time on the programme
  • Access to the UoB education facilities
  • Independent study time to complete programme work

The internship links to the Health Education England (HEE) Research and Innovation Strategy and Clinical Academic Careers Framework. The framework aims to provide a clear pathway from the start of clinicians’ careers with internships, through to those wishing to undertake senior clinical lectureships.
