The Clinical Research Fellowship Program (CRFP) supports clinicians in building their research skills and literacy through a series of workshops and practical training in which they develop a research proposal based on their area of clinical practice.
A graduation ceremony was held at Campbelltown Campus last week to mark the conclusion of the course work component, and to wish our Fellows well as they embark on the delivery of their research projects.
It was inspiring to hear the Fellows’ research proposals, particularly as the research is directly related to addressing current clinical issues and ultimately improving patient outcomes.
Thank you to Dr Connie Katelaris, Professor of Immunology and Allergy, who delivered the keynote address and imparted her wisdom to the graduates on how to succeed as a clinical academic, and embed research within a busy clinical career.
Thank you also to the academic mentors who have supported our Fellows, and all researchers who have been involved in delivering the Program – in particular, Dr Elizabeth Conroy, who has been instrumental in making the CRFP a success.
