Academic posts are a great opportunity if you are interested in developing your research and/or teaching skills, or are considering an academic career pathway in the future.

The academic posts are a 12-month training term that include a part-time (0.5FTE) academic component with a university and a part-time (0.5FTE) clinical component.

The posts aim to provide exposure to research and the academic environment and encourage registrars to incorporate academic work into their careers. By the end of the placement, registrars can expect to have undertaken a research project and submitted a paper for publication. This is an excellent opportunity to experience academic general practice and it may be the beginning of a career in academic medicine.
