Academic Clinical Lecturers

Academic Clinical Lecturers (ACLs) undertake academic research alongside their clinical training during the course of their lectureships, which are funded for up to 4 years.

ACLs must hold a PhD when appointed and most obtain their Certificates of Completion of Training (CCT) during their lectureship, i.e. complete their approved UK clinical training programme and are eligible for entry onto the GP Register or the Specialist Register.
