Course summary

Programme overview

The Department of Population Health Sciences is part of the Bristol Medical School. Staff in the department participate in extensive national and international research collaborations and provide health policy advice for government organisations and international bodies. Staff and students in the department are also members of the cross-faculty Bristol Population Health Science Institute.

The department is multi-disciplinary and includes statisticians, epidemiologists, geneticists, sociologists, psychologists, anthropologists, health economists, public health physicians, medical ethicists, data scientists, neuroscientists, and various community-based physicians and nurses. We are keen to attract graduates from all these disciplines to carry out postgraduate research. In the 2018 Postgraduate Research Experience Survey, 87 per cent of the school’s students were satisfied with their postgraduate experience. Ratings for quality of supervision, resources, research skills training and professional development met or exceeded sector averages.

Careers

Most of our final-year research students express a wish to continue in research. Most recent PhD graduates now work in the academic sector, with many others working in the health and private sectors. In addition to excellent research training, our students develop a range of transferable skills to ensure they have the best possible opportunities whatever their chosen career.
