HEFCE Clinical Senior Lectureships to Bristol medical staff

1 June 2007

The Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) has made Clinical Senior Lectureship Awards to three candidates nominated by the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry.

The recipients are:
  • Dr Patrick Horner - Genitourinary Medicine (in partnership with UBHT)
  • Mr Gavin Murphy - Cardiothoracic Surgery (in partnership with UBHT)
  • Mr Ashley Blom - Orthopaedics (in partnership with North Bristol Trust)

These are among 38 new HEFCE Clinical Senior Lectureships at 12 UK universities as part of a national scheme to support senior clinical academics in their career development. The awards will allow the clinicians to dedicate at least 50% of their time to academic activities. The reminder of their time will be in clinical practice in the partnership NHS Trust. Details about the lectureships are available in HEFCE’s news release.
