Sheffield Hallam University are proud to co-ordinate the Integrated Clinical Academic Programme Internship Scheme across the North East and Yorkshire region of Health Education England.

This scheme is open to non-medical clinical staff employed by a NHS organisation in the North East and Yorkshire  regions of Health Education England

The scheme provides a range of both taught and academically supervised interventions that both engage and expose the intern to the clinical academic research environment and also provide them with the practical skills to undertake a research project supported by an expert clinical academic supervisor.  The key components to the internship programme are:

  • a Clinical Academic Research Experience supported by supervision and research mentorship for 30 days.
  • an Educational Learning Package comprising of 2 attendance days and 4 half days of online teaching.

By the end of the programme we hope that participants will have the confidence to apply their newly learned skills within their employing Trusts, become research champions, and consider a future clinical academic career to include formally accredited education programmes, either within the HEE/NIHR Integrated Clinical Academic Programme, or via other routes. Interns will also benefit from an enhanced ability to apply successfully for further formal research training.

Further details of the Internships scheme, including case studies of previous participants is available on this link
