“The NIHR funds a range of health-related research projects, both evidence synthesis and evidence generating, with funding streams such as Research for Patient Benefit, Public Health Research, and Health Services and Delivery Research. In addition, the NIHR funds a range of fellowships that may be of interest to medical education researchers, including pre-doctoral, doctoral and advanced fellowships”.
In 2015 it made the following statement with regards medical education research: “NIHR is also prepared to support high quality research into 'medical education' (defined broadly as education for healthcare providers). Whilst this area of research need not fulfil the criterion of having 'potential for benefiting patients and the public within 5 years of its completion', it is expected that the research will have the potential to have practical application".
