The University hosts integrated clinical academic training programmes for health professionals to undertake research. The Leeds NIHR Integrated Academic Training (IAT) programme enables medical and dental trainees to develop their research career alongside their clinical training and practice.

Our IAT academic training pathway provides outstanding opportunities for doctors and dentists to develop cutting-edge research at each stage of their specialty clinical training including foundation training and during undergraduate studies.

Our ICA programme supports our academic allied healthcare professionals.
