The Manchester Academic Health Science Centre (MAHSC) hosts the Manchester Integrated Clinical Academic Training (ICAT) programme.
Aim: The aim of the ICAT programme is to facilitate and support the academic development of both undergraduate and postgraduate clinical trainees who aspire to follow a clinical academic career path.
Partnership: To achieve this aim, the ICAT programme is managed as a partnership between The University of Manchester and Health Education North West and in close liaison with the NIHR Trainees Coordinating Centre (NIHR TCC), which oversees ‘Integrated Academic Training’ nationally and is responsible for the allocation of funding to support programmes.
Research opportunities: Through the ICAT programme, clinical trainees have extensive opportunities to conduct cutting-edge research within world-class facilities that cover the full healthcare continuum from basic biomedical research to experimental medicine and healthcare service research.
Academic training is provided through a broad range of flexible postgraduate degree programmes as well as bespoke training options that are designed and delivered by the Faculty of Medical and Human Sciences (FMHS) training team and through the MAHSC Clinical Research Facilities.
Individualised research and career support is provided via:
- the Academic Programme Leads for each specialty,
- dedicated research supervisors,
- a mentoring programme and
- the FMHS Fellowship Academy.
