2023 Starship Foundation Medical & Surgical Fellowship

2023 Starship Foundation Te Puaruruhau (Child Protection) Fellowship


These one year Starship–based Medical & Surgical Fellowships are for advanced trainees in any specialty in Starship Child Health (e.g. medicine, surgery, anaesthesia, or psychiatry), and are designed to assist clinicians in developing both research and innovation skills and clinical knowledge in an area of their choice.

The Fellowships are available from February 2023 for one year.

The Fellowship positions consist of both supervised clinical activity (50%) and research or innovation activity (50%). In consultation with a nominated supervisor applicants must submit:

  1. A curriculum vitae, which includes an update on your advanced training project

  2. Statement of support from your proposed project supervisor and Service Clinical Director, including their plan for supervision and how the division of time between clinical and research will be managed

  3. An outline (maximum 2 pages) of the proposed clinical activity, including goals and details of how the time will be spent/goals achieved.

  4. An outline (maximum 5 pages, excluding bibliography) of the proposed research or innovation project which should include: background, aims/hypotheses, methods, ethics, time frame and outcome (i.e. publishing/presenting plans). Include a statement on the career benefit this fellowship will have.

  5. The name, address and phone number of two referees, one of whom can be your supervisor.

Selection will involve an interview and a 10 minute presentation of the proposed research or innovation project.

Selection will be based on the quality of the application, expected contribution of research or innovation to New Zealand children and young people, and the potential impact of the individual’s career development on national child health.

Please note: These fellowship positions are not part of the clinical service rosters.
