2014/15 HEE Integrated Clinical Academic Programme Internships

In 2014, Health Education England launched and funded the integrated clinical academic internships programme. Supporting the first step onto a clinical academic career pathway, the 30 day internship was open to registered Health Professionals across the Northern region covering the North West, North East and Yorkshire & Humber. Interviews were conducted in December 2014 and 15 internships were awarded. The programme was carried over 6 months from January to July 2015 when certificates were awarded.
