Clinician Research Fellowships

The Clinician Research Fellowships program is now open for applications.

The Clinician Research Fellowships 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:

  • across healthcare disciplines including allied health and health sciences; dental; medical; and nursing/midwifery professionals;
  • who are either early- or mid-career researchers; and
  • who have minimal or no paid research time.

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 3 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.

Applications close: Thursday 30 March 2017 at 1:00pm.

The Guidelines and Conditions and Application documents can be accessed on the Raine Medical Research Foundation website
