NIHR Training Programmes

There is a wide range of NIHR training and career development awards available at different levels and accessible by different professional backgrounds. These awards are all managed by the NIHR Academy and comprise both personal awards, which can be applied for directly, and institutional awards which should be applied for through the host institution. 

Further details on each programme or scheme can be found from the links at the side of the page.
