National Health & Medical Research Council (NHMRC): Practitioner Fellowships Scheme

The National Health & Medical Research Council (NHMRC) Practitioner Fellowship scheme is a key element in NHMRC’s commitment to accelerate bridging the gap between the acquisition of new knowledge from research and its implementation into practice and policy.

The scheme aims to support research which results in the translation of new evidence into improved clinical practice and health policy and which delivers improvements in health and healthcare to Australians.

The specific objectives of this scheme are to:

  • strengthen health and public health practice and services by providing an opportunity for clinical, public and health services research practitioners to combine their research with their professional careers, to facilitate translation of research outcomes into practice
  • build future capability for research and the translation of research by supporting leaders who work as health practitioners and who combine their practice with research at the highest level
  • contribute to evidence-based practice and policy development in Australian health systems by supporting high quality research to cross evidence-practice gaps.


The NHMRC Practitioner Fellowship is five years, part-time.
