What is a clinical academic?
A clinical academic is a clinically qualified medical researcher who is involved in making scientific discoveries which translate into a greater understanding of human health and disease. Clinical academics contribute to the development of new treatment paradigms. They are also involved in teaching and mentoring clinicians who are interested in developing an academic career track.
