SUMMER INTERNSHIPS IN PSYCHIATRY

 The Undergraduate Internship Programme (UIP) is a new scheme designed by the National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) to encourage undergraduate students in the 2nd or 3rd year of degree-level study to consider a career in health and social care research, focusing on priority and under-represented professions and disciplines including public health and research methodology.    

The scheme, which is funded by the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC), will allow interns to gain hands-on experience through a 6- to 8-week placement in the area or discipline they are interested in pursuing, supported throughout by dedicated supervision and mentorship from experts in the field. This opportunity will suit undergraduate students who are considering pursuing a research career after their studies.

These are fully funded internships. Interns will receive a £2,400 stipend plus £1,000 to support travel and accommodation costs (pro-rated for internships <8 weeks). Interns will also have access to a small training and development fund (£200) to attend courses/training/conferences that will complement their internship experience.

All candidates should download and read the job description  as this gives full details of the internships offered including how to make your application
