Attendees at the MCRC PhD Students & Medical Oncology Clinical Fellows Welcome Event 2017 in the MCRC building

The Medical Oncology Departments currently host over 20 clinical fellows.  Depending on the project and funding, these fellows are attached to one or more disease-specific groups and play an active part in NHS outpatient care, research clinics and associated meetings.  All fellows have their own supervisor(s) that provide mentoring and training throughout the programme. 

Clinical fellows are also encouraged to develop and lead on their own research projects and audits.  As part of the formal fellowship programme at The Christie, there are weekly training sessions and an annual research day.

Additional funding is available for education and training activities.  Depending on the type of fellowship, posts can begin at any time and last from 6 months to 2 years.
