The NHS England Clinical Entrepreneur training program, aimed at junior doctors has opened for applications on Wednesday 11 November 2015. It has been developed and managed by NHS England and Health Education England and is designed to stimulate and encourage the most entrepreneurial clinicians to develop their own products and services to improve healthcare.
This is an integrated training program consisting of two streams:
- Clinical Entrepreneur Fellowship – aimed at junior doctors who have a clinical innovation currently under development. If accepted, you will receive personalised mentoring and coaching, entrepreneurial placements and internship within industry, charities and social enterprises. You will also have time out from clinical duties for three to 12 months, depending on your individual needs.
- Core Training Scheme – open to all doctors, the training scheme will offer crash-courses covering a wide curriculum in starting and running a business, regulation, governance, building investment, sales & marketing and much more. These will be offered in the form of expert webinars, video content, boot camps, networking and other events.
For more information and to apply for the program, visit the official NHS England website. The program will start in Autumn 2016 and applications close December 5th 2015.
