Please note for each post there are up to three clinical specialties that are able to apply, but only 1 ACF post is available.
Applicants applying for NIHR Academic Clinical Fellowships who require clinical benchmarking will be required to complete and submit both an academic application form and the associated clinical application form for the specialty in which they will require clinical benchmarking.
If shortlisted, academic applicants will be required to attend an integrated academic interview, consisting of both academic and clinical questions and assessors. Those who are considered appointable at the academic interview, who do not hold an NTN or DRN in the specialty, will be invited to attend a clinical interview in the same specialty, at the same training level, providing they have also completed the associated clinical application form. Any academic offers made will be conditional upon meeting the appointability threshold at the clinical interview.
Please see Specialty training guidance here and the FAQ’s below for more information.
Academic Interviews this year will be an online virtual interview. A Microsoft Teams link will be sent by email a minimum of 1 working day prior to interview. Shortlisted applicants will be requested to email in ID Documents prior to interview, then show virtually on the day of interview.
