There is an increasing demand for part-time academic training for personal reasons and from clinicians who do not wish to lose clinical competencies. In 2012 we introduced part time GP Career Progression awards.  These can be for a length of time from 12 to 24 months. Applications deadline: Midday, Thursday 25 February 2016.


These are available to those with limited primary care experience (e.g. Masters-level training). The awards offer traditional project-specific training in shortage-areas of particular importance to primary care. They focus on non-clinical disciplines (e.g. medical statistics, health economics, health psychology).  Students will be encouraged to maintain links with their own disciplines through collaborative arrangements for co-supervision with established senior non-clinical primary care researchers.

Application deadline: Midday, Thursday 25 February 2016.


These are available to those with some previous research experience, such as those who have worked as research associates in primary care research. However, these awards are not generally based around a specified single project but may involve attachment to a Clinical Trials Unit or similar research grouping involved in a programme of large-scale research. The awards will be open to all disciplines relevant to primary care research, clinical and non-clinical.

Application deadline: Midday, Thursday 25 February 2016.
