In conjunction with the NIHR Clinical Research Network, the Faculty offers two awards annually that aim to recognise outstanding contributions from NHS Clinicians to the conduct of NIHR Clinical Research Network portfolio research studies.
There are two awards, funded by FICM, each with a £1000 prize. The awards are focussed on clinicians who undertake research alongside their daytime activities rather than clinical academics.
