Honorary Contracts

Academic Clinical Fellows

ACFs are employed by the NHS and are required to obtain an honorary contract with the University of Bristol. Trainees at UWE in Emergency Medicine and trainees at Bath in Rheumatology should have two honorary contracts - an honorary contract with their University and also with University of Bristol. This honorary contract will allow you access to UoB facilities including the library, and will provide you with a UoB email address which you will need in order to book onto any courses held at the University of Bristol. This honorary contract is a requirement of your academic clinical post.
