Physiotherapist and CLAHRC HEE NCEL Fellow Emma Dunphy has been successful in her application for a prestigious Clinical Doctoral Research Fellowship with the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR).
Emma’s proposed research will develop an E-Health intervention to improve rehabilitation for anterior cruciate ligament injuries.
After spending a year with the CLAHRC on our fellowship scheme honing her research skills Emma successfully applied to the NIHR scheme against stiff competition.
The HEE/NIHR Clinical Doctoral Research Fellowship (CDRF) Scheme is aimed at registered non-medical healthcare professionals sited in England with at least 1 year’s experience of clinical practice, sufficient research experience or training to prepare them to undertake a PhD, and who wish to obtain a PhD by research whilst continuing to develop their clinical skills.
The full title for Emma’s research under the scheme will be Development of a model of service delivery to standardise anterior cruciate ligament rehabilitation in the NHS and testing the feasibility of an E-Health intervention to support delivery of this model.
