NHMRC Practitioner Fellowship
An NHMRC Practitioner Fellowship is a five year, part-time Fellowship for clinicians, public health or health service professionals to engage in research related to their professional activities.
The Practitioner Fellowships scheme is a key element in NHMRC’s commitment to accelerate the bridging of the gap between the acquisition of new knowledge from research and its implementation into practice and policy.
The scheme aims to support research which results in the translation of new evidence into improved clinical practice and health policy and which delivers improvements in health and healthcare to Australians.
The specific objectives of the scheme are to:
Practitioner Fellowships are for five years and are paid at one of two levels, depending on the applicant's seniority and experience :
The salary is scaled according to the fraction of the part-time fellowship, from 0.4 to 0.7 full-time equivalent.
Applicants must either have already obtained financial support for their research activity or have an application pending.
The Faculties have their own approval and review processes for grants under this scheme. They may also have deadlines for submission of draft applications that are earlier than the Research Office deadlines. Please ensure that you contact your Faculty, as early as possible, for information on process and deadlines.
