Chief Nurse Research Fellow programme
The aim of the fellowship programme is to develop clinical excellence and research capacity (the ability to carry out research) amongst nurses, midwives and allied health professionals at St George’s. It is aimed at Band 6 NMAHPs and Research Fellows are released from practice 1 day per week (0.2WTE) to undertake a structured, year long researcher development programme including a fully funded PGCert in Research Methods.
Chief Nurse Research Intern programme
The aim of the intern programme is to support nurses, midwives and allied health professionals at St George’s to take their first steps in research. Research interns are released from practice 1 day per week (0.2WTE) for 6 months to undertake an evidence-based clinical project agreed with their managers (service evaluation, literature review) with a clear benefit for patients or workforce. Training is personalised, with both formal and informal learning opportunities, with clinical academic mentorship supported internally. Peer support is offered through action learning sets with other research interns.
