The NIHR Sheffield Clinical Research Facility (CRF) is a cross site unit where we deliver clinical trials in a safe and purpose built environment. We have links to all clinical directorates and work as both an inpatient and outpatient facility, adapting to specific research protocols. Students are provided with a student pack which includes self-directed work, and provides an introduction to clinical research and the research process. Students visiting the CRF are also allocated a supervisor and will spend time at both CRF sites as well as with research partners throughout the Trust.
To make the most of this placement opportunity, we expect students to adhere to uniform policy, wear an identity badge at all times and arrive on time. We encourage students to ask questions, interact with research participants, read protocols and patient information and engage in the research process.
