The Clinician Research Fellowship program is an initiative of the Department of Health in conjunction with the Raine Medical Research Foundation.
The program is designed to encourage clinicians employed by WA Health to develop their research capability, while continuing some clinical duties. The program also facilitates high quality research that will ultimately provide better healthcare outcomes. The research must be undertaken in WA and be of direct relevance to WA Health.
The program is open to WA Health clinicians:
Fellowship funding will provide salary support for research duties up to 0.5 FTE, as well as contribute to minor research costs. The duration of each Fellowship can be up to three years, depending on the extent of the research proposal. During the term of the Fellowship, clinical duties within WA Health must be maintained at a minimum of 0.3 FTE.
The Guidelines and Conditions governing the Fellowships are subject to regular review by the WA Department of Health and the Raine Research Committee to ensure that they are relevant and clearly articulate the main principles for selection.
Clinician Research Fellowships (Round six) are now closed. Applications for the next annual round will open in February 2018.
