Course summary

The Institute of Applied Health Sciences (IAHS) pursues an agenda of excellence in health services research, with a strategy based upon applying current methodological strength to selected clinical topics.

Current areas of strength include cohort studies, large-scale multicentre randomised trials, health economic research, health services research, health technology assessment and health informatics.

Our research interests include:

  • Symptoms and early diagnosis
    The prevalence, determinants and impact of symptoms, the value of prognosis to patients and affordability of different diagnostic approaches.
  • Evaluation of healthcare interventions
    The synthesis of modelling and systematic reviewing; large non drug randomised clinical trials, especially non-drug technologies and complex interventions; health economics evaluation, including the choice of experiments; and Health informatics.
  • Delivery and organisation of care
    This includes resource allocation, service delivery and workforce challenges
  • Health Services Research Unit and the Health Economics Research Unit

You can choose a wide range of health research options from studying a research degree. This can include lab work to innovate, understand medical issues or find a solution to a specific problem working in public and private health environments or specialist research institutes.

Please note that part-time study is not available for resident international students. The PhD may be conducted, full-time or part-time, by distance learning, which carries no residency requirement.

The PhD at the University of Aberdeen is a research degree. Research degrees are defined by the student’s own research proposal, on which the student will write a thesis. Research students read on their own research topic and work closely with their supervisors to define their research and write a thesis. They also attend regular research seminars, are provided with opportunities to attend conferences and for some postgraduates, there are opportunities to gain undergraduate teaching experience.
