NIHR Training Advocates

NIHR Academic Training Advocates are ambassadors for clinical led research and clinical academic careers. They promote NIHR training and career opportunities, and support clinicians embarking on or developing their own research career.

If you are an aspiring or early career clinical academic, or an organisation developing clinical academic careers, our advocates may be able to advise you.
