Associate PI scheme
For ambitious and academically inclined doctors, nurses and other health care professionals that want to become Principal Investigators (PIs) in the future, the Associate Principal Investigator Scheme is a great opportunity.
“The Associate PI Scheme is a six month in-work training opportunity, providing practical experience for healthcare professionals starting their research career”.
The Associate PI scheme is for people who would not normally have the opportunity to take part in clinical research in their day-to-day role have the chance to experience what it means to work on and deliver a NIHR portfolio trial under the mentorship of an enthusiastic Local PI.
Participating healthcare professionals receive formal recognition of engagement in NIHR Portfolio research studies through the certification of Associate PI status, endorsed by the NIHR and Royal Colleges.
