Clinical academic career pathways for nurses, midwives and allied health professionals

Monday 22 March 2021 at 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Are you interested in developing a career in research alongside your clinical practice? There is a growing focus, both nationally and locally, on improving clinical academic career pathways for nurses, midwives and allied health professionals. Clinical academic roles allow you to pursue your own research interests and improve quality of care for patients while maintaining clinical skills.

In this event, hosted by the NIHR Oxford Biomedical Research Centre, a panel of clinical academic researchers will discuss their own experiences in research, the benefits of clinical academic roles and how we can improve support for these career pathways.

Register for this event.
