Queensland Advancing Clinical Research Fellowships

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 recognises 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 objectives of the Queensland Advancing Clinical Research Fellowships are to:

  • Develop Queensland Health clinician researchers and support their research career progression, 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.
