2022/23 Internship Programme Applications now open!

The NIHR ARC-GM is pleased to announce that our 2022/23 Internship Programme is now open for applications.


The NIHR ARC-GM Internship Programme provides health and social care professionals in Greater Manchester the opportunity to spend 30 days over a 4-9 month period with our research teams. The programme presents a fantastic opportunity to gain insights into research, enhance existing skills and develop new ones.


Prof. Michelle Briggs, (Clinical Professor of Nursing at The University of Manchester and Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust, and Clinical NIHR ARC-GM Capacity Building Lead) said: 


 “Our Internship Programme provides a supported experience working alongside NIHR ARC-GM researchers; it also benefits from the established relationships that NIHR ARC-GM has with all the universities in Greater Manchester and the wider organisations committed to encouraging confidence and competence in research.


The Internship Programme provides a firm foundation for health and social care professionals who are interested in developing an academic career combined with working in the health and care environment.“


The programme is based at The University of Manchester. It has been designed to be flexible and inclusive; applicants from diverse backgrounds, social care and public health disciplines are particularly encouraged to apply.


Laura McGarrigle, who completed the Internship Programme in 2021/22 and is now undertaking a Pre-doctoral Fellowship with NIHR ARC-GM, commented:


“I would highly recommend this internship to anyone in the department keen to develop their research skills and ideas. I feel much more confident, competent and able to see how I can keep going with the path of research alongside a clinical career.”
