General Practice Academic Research Training Scheme (GPARTS) Awards

The GPARTS Awards support training in research for trainee general practitioners whilst they complete their clinical training in general practice.

The awards provide two-year posts which aim to increase the research capacity of primary care, by giving the trainees opportunity to gain experience in academic general practice and to develop expertise in clinical research and education. The training is designed to create a resource of trained practitioners with leadership skills, who are equipped to make evidence-based decisions regarding the best approaches to the provision of high quality health and social care and the prevention of disease. The scheme thus contributes to ongoing efforts towards improving people’s health.
