Clinical Lecturers

Clinical Lecturers (CLs) are specialist clinical trainees who undertake a 4 year programme that allows them to undertake 50% protected research time alongside 50% clinical activities. These posts are open to specialist trainees who have completed a PhD or equivalent and show outstanding potential for continuing a career in academic medicine.

CLs must 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 on completion of the lectureship.
