Applications open for BRC Clinical Academic Mentoring Scheme

17 May 2022

We are delighted to announce that applications are now open for Mentees to submit their request to take part in this year’s BRC Clinical Academic Mentoring Scheme, a joint ICR-RM initiative which seeks to support the academic career progression of clinician researchers.

Men having a discussion

This scheme, now in its sixth year, is open to any clinicians considering the next steps in their research career whether at pre-doctoral, doctoral or postdoctoral level. 

The need for career mentoring has been identified as a high priority for clinical researchers and participants in previous years have found it very helpful being able to discuss issues with someone from outside of their direct reporting structures. It may be of benefit to you if you are interested in exploring how to manage the demands of a dual career, balance career and carer responsibilities, understand the career pathways as a clinical academic, or would like a senior clinical academic as a role model/sounding board.

If you would like to be considered for the Scheme, please complete the following survey by Monday 30th May at 9:00am

BRC Clinical Academic Mentoring Scheme Survey

Please note that we are limited by the number of mentors available. Places will be prioritised for mentees approaching a key career transition e.g. coming to the end of their ACF, MDRes/PhD or early postdocs. Participants will be notified beginning of June.
