What is CATCH?

The Clinical Academic Training Hub (CATCH) aims to be the home for information on clinical academic careers. The purpose of this site is to:

  • Showcase and promote the wide variety of exciting career options in clinical academia across a range of healthcare disciplines
  • Provide practical advice on clinical academic career options across all four nations of the UK
  • Highlight inspiring clinical academics at a variety of career stages to help build aspirations
  • Build links between clinical practice and academia

The information on this website is intended to be introductory rather than exhaustive. CATCH aims to answer many of the broader questions around clinical academic careers; what they are, who they are for, and how you might take the first steps toward a clinical academic career of your own.

For more detailed information, look out for links to further reading or contact us directly.
