Course summary

Overview

The School of Medicine offers research degrees in the medical disciplines such as cancer, immunology, infection, immunity, neurosciences, mental health, population medicine and medical education. For well over 100 years the School of Medicine has been committed to the pursuit of improved health through education, research and engagement with the wider world. Our commitment to research excellence is supported through strong research centres, groups and units working collaboratively in our modern facilities. Carrying out work in our research divisions, our researchers are involved in cutting-edge science and world-class research in the field of medicine that have a real impact on people’s lives. Our research is focused on interdisciplinary themes, each of which spans the spectrum from basic science to clinical practice in either hospital or community settings. Our approach brings together people, knowledge and skills from a range of disciplines. This approach is the key to our research strength and achievements. Each of our research divisions embodies this philosophy. PhD - Undertaking a PhD can be an exciting and rewarding opportunity to explore something in depth, amongst field-leading researchers with truly first-class facilities. Candidates are required to make an original contribution to knowledge by conducting an independent research project. MD - The research project will usually have a clinical focus, but other aspects of medical and health care provision may form the basis of the research topic. Applicants are usually required to hold an MBBCH degree or equivalent. Candidates are usually registered with the General Medical Council. MPhil - MPhil is a stand-alone programme that allows candidates to undertake a research programme over one year. Sometimes, this can be an intermediate step before registering on a subsequent PhD programme; depending on how the project develops.
