The Fellowship supports one to two days per week of research time for a clinical research project, allowing emerging clinician researchers to take time away from their clinic duties and dedicate it to type 1 diabetes research. Recipients of the MCRF undertake a research training plan mentored by an established clinician researcher to develop  research skills and assist them in becoming established in the field of type 1 diabetes clinical research.

Applicants must be medically qualified (MBBS or equivalent) and have shown a commitment to persuing a research career.  Applicants must be mentored by an established investigator affiliated with an Australian research institution.
