Welcome to Academic Clinical Fellowship recruitment at Health Education England – East of England. 
Applications are invited from talented and enthusiastic doctors in training who seek a career combining research, teaching and the care of patients. The Academic Clinical Fellowship provides integrated academic and clinical training. Within the programme, Fellows should develop skills allowing them to compete successfully for funding to study for a higher research degree (MD/PhD). Only applicants who can demonstrate that they have outstanding potential for development as a clinical academic will be considered for this programme. These integrated academic training programmes will be associated with the award of a relevant NTN (a). 
 
Applications open on Friday 7th October 2022 at 1000hrs and close on Wednesday 2nd November 2022 at 1600hrs. It will NOT be possible to submit an application after the closing time stated. Applications will only be accepted if submitted electronically and online via Oriel. 
 
Please visit the adverts to find out further information. 
From 6th October 2019 we have been advised that all medical practitioners will be on the shortage occupation list in the UK which means that medical applicants will be exempt from the Resident Labour Market Test (RLMT).  Evidence of immigration status should normally consist of a biometric residence card, date stamped passport, and accompanying letter from the Home Office. Please visit their website for more information.
A number of these posts are in direct competition with each other. Please refer to the tables below..
