Imperial AHSC Support for Clinical PhD/MD(Res) Fellows
Over the coming months the Clinical Academic Training Office (CATO) will be introducing a programme of support for clinical PhD fellows across the Faculty of Medicine and wider AHSC partnership. The aim of the work is to gain a clearer picture of the range of clinical PhD fellows, even-out and improve their experience (complimenting the support provided already by each department/Trust), establish a visible central liaison hub for supporting clinicians as they undertake PhD programmes, and support them to progress their clinical academic careers into intermediate fellowships and beyond.
The CATO programme will include collecting enhanced feedback from clinical PhD training fellows, a series of Masterclasses covering researcher development and career development topics, fact sheets on common problems/issues, delivering individualised career guidance and enhanced working with the Imperial College London Postdoc and Fellows Development Centre. Currently there are 2 Masterclasses that PhD/MD(Res) fellows can book on to, details below:
