Allied Health Professionals invited to apply to become NICE fellows or scholars

National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) is offering the chance for AHPs working in health and social care to gain a unique insight into the work of NICE, influence its work, and gain access to a range of career enhancing opportunities through its fellows and scholars programmes. 

These programmes recognise the achievements and promise of individuals from health, public health and social care who are working to improve the quality of care. NICE fellows and scholars benefit from development opportunities and get to work with likeminded colleagues from different disciplines across the UK.

NICE fellows are senior health and social care leaders who are ambassadors for the Institute at regional and national levels and among their professional groups and peers. Over the course of their 3 year fellowship they are expected to dedicate around 1 day per month to using their networks and influence to support NICE in the implementation of its guidance.

NICE scholarships are 1 year opportunities for individuals working in health and social care to find out about the inner workings of NICE and undertake an improvement project, related to NICE guidance, within their local area. Scholars are expected to dedicate approximately 1 day per week to their scholarship activities.

This is a fantastic opportunity and there are a number of AHPs who are current and previous NICE Fellows and scholars, and who have found that the programmes helped to open doors for them to progress their careers.

NICE appoints up to 10 fellows and 10 scholars per year. Both roles are unpaid and undertaken alongside successful candidates existing jobs

Recruitment for the 2019 intake opened on 17 September and applications close on 9 November.  More information can be found on the attached PDF and at: and
