To provide coordinated feedback of local progress and issues relating to the ICAT pathway to the NIHR TCC.
To aid understanding of the challenges of academic training within the current training environment and to engender a supportive environment in clinical departments and research institutions where clinical academic training takes place.
To provide a forum for sharing best practice in management on the ICAT pathway by academic leads.
To engage with funders of the clinical and / or academic components of clinical academic training as appropriate.
To interact with relevant bodies in the devolved nations (Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland) where it is considered that a unified, co-ordinated approach involving those organisations would benefit clinical academic training in England and the UK.
