To date, three cohorts of applicants have been recruited to the ePortfolio (supported) Route and the Centre has opened an Expressions of Interest (EOI) form

Continuing beyond Masters level…..

The Health Education England (HEE) / NIHR Integrated Clinical and Practitioner Academic (ICA) Programme provides research training awards for health and social care professionals, excluding doctors and dentists, who wish to develop careers that combine research and research leadership with continued practice and professional development. 

In addition, doctoral and post-doctoral award holders can access funded career mentorship through the ICA Programme’s bespoke Mentorship Scheme.

Professional Doctorates are awards conferring intellectual and professional distinction which recognise the achievements of senior practitioners in a range of disciplines.

The courses are an alternative to traditional PhD study, based on taught programmes with a research element, and are particularly suited to professionals who are seeking CPD.
