Clinician Researcher Fellowship Scheme

The Fellowships are intended to support Tropical Australian Academic Health Centre clinicians to undertake research linked to their practice.

The aim of the Fellowship is to provide protected, guaranteed time for a clinician to undertake research.Through the Fellowship scheme, the Centre effectively ‘purchases’ a portion of a clinician’s time, allowing them to devote a percentage of their time to research activity.

The scheme recognises that clinician researchers (including doctors, nurses, dentists, allied health practitioners and clinical scientists) are best placed to identify health challenges that can benefit from research, lead patient centred research discoveries and facilitate improved service delivery and quality of care through research translation.

Applicants to the scheme must hold a salaried appointment in a clinically related role with one of the Hospital and Health Service Members of the Centre.
