The Queensland Advancing Clinical Research Fellowships (CRF) program delivers on a key commitment by Queensland Health in the Queensland Advancing Health Research 2026 Strategy, “to design, develop and fund new fellowships programs with a clear focus on translation into clinical practice and improved health outcomes”.

The CRFs are intended to support Queensland Health clinician-researchers undertake research linked to their practice. The program recognizes that clinician-researchers (including doctors, nurses, dentists, allied health practitioners, and clinical scientists) are uniquely placed to identify clinical issues that can benefit from further research, lead patient-focussed research discoveries and facilitate improved patient care through research translation.

The specific objectives of the CRF program are to:

  • Support the career development of Queensland Health’s emerging clinician researchers and research leaders, particularly toward securing competitive research funding from national agencies and other funding sources.
  • Support health and medical research projects that have real potential to lead to better health outcomes for Queenslanders.
  • Build collaborative linkages between Queensland Health and the wider Queensland health and medical research sector to support the translation of research discoveries into frontline healthcare.

If you want to study in Australia, you can apply for the University of Queensland Fellowships, which are provided to international students of various nationalities around the world who wish to have the opportunity to study in Australia for the academic year 2021-2022. Scholarships help advance your academic and career goals by removing financial barriers in order to cover tuition expenses.
