Academic Clinical Fellows (ACF)

Academic Clinical Fellows (ACFs) are part of the Integrated Clinical Academic Training (ICAT) programme established to provide a clear route for doctors and dentists interested in an academic career.  ACFs have 25% protected academic time to allow them to develop their academic research skills alongside their clinical training over a period of 3 or 4 years.

ACFs are funded through the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) who outline a number of subjects that must be covered as part of the NIHR academic training programme.

Further information about the ACF training is available from the ICAT website.
