Academic Research Fellows

A Research Fellow is a medical, nursing or paramedical member of the Department who is attached to the unit for a defined period of training (usually 1-3 years depending on the duration of their project). Fellows will usually register for a higher degree during their attachment. Fellows may work on a full or part-time basis with clinical sessions in Anaesthesia or Critical Care.

Research Fellows will all be nominated an academic and clinical supervisor following appointment. The Academic supervisor is responsible for monitoring the Fellows progress and maintaining an overview on their activity. The University regulations require that fellows registering for higher degrees should have two academic supervisors. The University regulations require that degree fellows are co-supervised by either Professor Gao or Dr Perkins.

The clinical supervisor will be appointed by the Clinical Director for Anaesthesia or Critical Care and will be responsible for managing any clinical aspects of the Fellows training.

Fellows will be jointly appraised by their research and clinical supervisors at least 12 monthly. At the end of the research period a certificate will be issued by the department recording the training received.
