In additional to the nationally funded internships described above, HEE Wessex also offers a number of transitional internships, subject to funding availability. These internships work in the same way to the HEE/NIHR Clinical Academic Training Programme Internships.  However, they are not restricted to the pre post-graduate master level, therefore individuals can apply for this award at any transition point in their clinical academic career
