TRIP Fellowships provide support for health care professionals, health care personnel, health systems personnel, health researchers and health policy makers to translate evidence into health care and public health improvements.

NHMRC TRIP Fellowships provide support for health care professionals (e.g medical specialists, general practitioners, public health practitioners, physiotherapists, nurses, midwives, radiologists, and other allied health providers), health care personnel (health service managers, hospital department leaders, clinical trial managers) health systems personnel, health researchers and health policy makers to translate evidence into health care and public health improvements.

Note: In the context of the TRIP Fellowship, a policy maker is defined as someone who contributes significantly to the development of a health policy or policy decisions. The person must also be actively implementing or contributing significantly to the implementation of policy into practice.

The Fellowships provide for 0.5 of a full time equivalent position and ensure time for Fellows to develop the range of skills needed for leadership in research translation within their career. TRIP Fellowships are not designed to support applicants already established as health care leaders.
