 Applications for part-time awards are invited from primary care clinicians with a strong academic record and a commitment to a career in academic primary care. The 1-year fellowship provides clinicians the opportunity to further develop their academic track record in preparation to apply for and conduct a PhD. 

The fellowship may be undertaken at any one of the nine universities within the NIHR School for Primary Care Research: Bristol, Exeter, Keele, Manchester, Nottingham, Oxford, QMUL, Southampton and University College London. Read more about the research conducted at the SPCR members and their support for early career researchers.

Those successful in securing a SPCR Fellowship will become part of the SPCR Trainees community. Read more about what benefits this will provide.
