Clinical academics

Clinical academics possess expertise in both clinical and scientific research and work across all three faculties at LSHTM. They undertake clinical practice, conduct academic research, teaching and training. The mix of these elements varies across individuals and their specific roles.

The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) have a video on developing a clinical academic career, which is a quick guide for any healthcare professionals who may be considering a clinical academic career.
