Internships are short-duration awards for individuals with little or no research experience. The award covers salary costs for the days undertaking the Internship away from clinical practice, and typically lasts between 3 and 6 months.
Internships support nurses, midwives and allied heath professionals (NMAHPs) to develop their research skills and knowledge to prepare them to make applications for pre-doctoral or doctoral awards and/or work within a research team as a taster to research.
NMAHPs receive training and support from a team of experienced mentors, are given protected research time, develop research networks and gain career guidance for further research opportunities.
