Additional Information:

1) This Advert is for NIHR funded posts.

2) As stated in the Applicant Handbook 2016, section “14 Recruitment to Academic Clinical Fellow (ACF) posts

Appointments to Academic Clinical Fellow posts require applicants to reach appointability in a clinical interview for the specialty they are applying for, in addition to the integrated academic interview.

Applicants who already hold a National Training Number (NTN) or Deanery Reference Number (DRN) at the appropriate training level, in the specialty for which they are applying for academic training will have already met the standard to be deemed appointable at a clinical interview and will therefore only be required to attend the integrated academic interview panel.”
