Course summary

The MRes Applied Clinical Research programme has been designed to serve healthcare professionals such as nursing, audiology, midwifery, physiotherapy, psychology, radiology and medical sciences graduates wanting to embark on a research degree focussing on human health and disease. As such, it leads to a professionally recognised qualification, being externally approved by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS).

This programme equips graduates with the skills and subject-specific knowledge needed to pursue a research-based career in clinical medicine and healthcare. The programme focuses on clinical research (e.g. audits, clinical outcome measures, quality improvement, qualitative or quantitative), and provides ideal training for students who want to enhance their careers within the NHS and health sector, or subsequently wish to move onto a PhD programme, or who simply wish to undertake a significant research (120 credits) project at Masters level.

Key Course Features

Each module takes the form of a learning package consisting of a three day block of face-to-face teaching supported by online learning.
