Selection process

The panel will select outstanding national and international candidates.

Candidates will be selected on merit, irrespective of gender, age, full/part time or country of origin, as long as they fit the eligibility criteria.


As the GW4-CAT admissions process is not project-focused, you will be expected to show that you are a motivated clinically qualified trainee and demonstrate the capability and drive to undertake a period of research with a view to developing a long-term career as a clinical academic. You will also be expected to convincingly explain why GW4-CAT is the right programme for you.

You will be given more specific information about the interview format if you are selected to attend.
