Academic Paediatric Training
Paediatricians wishing to pursue an academic career have particular training requirements and there is a continuing need to sustain and develop academic training programmes.
The College has established a network of Academic Regional Advisors throughout the country to provide guidance and support to academic trainees and those wishing to undertake research alongside their clinical training.
Trainees undertaking research will generally obtain a CCT via the conventional route, their registered specialty being paediatrics. However, a small minority may seek to have their names entered on the Specialist Register via the academic route.
Information on entry to academic training via Academic Clinical Fellowships and Academic Clinical Lecturer posts can be found on the Modernising Medical Careers (MMC) website.
The Academic Paediatrics Association (Great Britain and Ireland) welcomes members from among all those interested in academic paediatrics and those undertaking research
- The British Academy of Childhood Disability's Strategic Research Group has developed information for trainees considering a career in academic paediatrics. The information will be of most interest to neurodisability and community trainees, but also to neurology trainees. There is information on general academic training, including its consultancy service, and a semi-automated system for locating up to date information on grant calls and fellowships relevant to paediatric disability research.
