Following the success of this year’s event, we would like to invite expressions of interest in attending our second ‘Developing Your Clinical Academic Career’ event on Thursday 2 February 2017.

The event is specifically for HEE / NIHR Integrated Clinical Academic (ICA), CAT and Healthcare Science trainees and NIHR Fellowship award holders and trainees based in the infrastructure who are eligible for the ICA programme who wish to pursue a clinical academic career.
Key dates and allocation of places
Expressions of interest are invited between Thursday 24 November and Friday 23 December 2016. Places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis whilst ensuring a proportional spread of geographical locations, professions and award level.

We will be holding an optional poster competition for delegates. Posters produced for this year's event should address the following question:
How has your research topic improved your clinical skills or understanding of how you apply them, leading to a better experience for patients, now or in the future?
