 What does the internship offer?

This is a 48 day programme that takes place over 12 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 for non-medical healthcare professions.

  • A structured taught programme enabling interns to develop skills in the design and delivery of clinical research – aligned with University of Birmingham Masters in Research
  • Access to observational and practical placements to provide an insight into a real world research or academic environment
  • One to one supervision from a clinical academic supervisor throughout the programme
  • Development of a clinical academic portfolio to support and evidence learning during and following 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.
