The Chief Pharmaceutical Officer’s Clinical Fellow Scheme 2022/2023

Application Deadline: December 9th 2021

The Chief Pharmaceutical Officer’s Clinical Fellow Scheme was established in 2015 and is designed to support and develop pharmacists who present with the clearest potential to develop as clinical leaders of the future. The scheme is sponsored by the Chief Pharmaceutical Officer of NHS England and NHS Improvement and is managed by the Faculty of Medical Leadership and Management. 

The scheme is a highly prestigious and competitive national programme that sees only a small number of pharmacists a year appointed after a rigorous recruitment process.

How it works
