This Doctorate in Medicine is for clinicians working in practice who would like to undertake a programme of individual research, under the principal supervision of a clinical specialist. Read more
This Doctorate in Medicine is for clinicians working in practice who would like to undertake a programme of individual research, under the principal supervision of a clinical specialist. It provides maximum flexibility and enables candidates to contribute to the final award using previous research.

The MD will provide the opportunity to study a wide range of subject areas relevant to clinical practice, these may involve clinically based research, laboratory based research or a combination of both. A thesis of up to 80,000 words, in which candidates must demonstrate a significant original contribution to clinical practice will complete the programme.


--- The Programme ---
The programme has been designed to enable maximum flexibility and is further enhanced by the opportunity for candidates to contribute to the final award using previous (recent) research.

The MD affords candidates the opportunity to study a wide range of subject areas relevant to their own clinical practice and this may involve clinically based research, laboratory based research or a combination of both. The culmination of the programme will be the thesis, in which candidates must demonstrate a significant original contribution to clinical practice.

Candidates who have completed the MD programme will typically:
• Be able to develop theoretical concepts, systematically design and implement a project with the intention of the generation of new knowledge within a specified clinical area and recognise and adjust for unforeseen problems.
• Demonstrate an advanced understanding of recent advances within the field.
• Demonstrate an advanced understanding of appropriate research techniques and methods of
academic enquiry.
• Provide evidence of original independent and critical thinking.
• Demonstrate an ability to critically analyse and evaluate their own research findings and those of others.
• Provide evidence of the creation of new knowledge or new application of existing knowledge within their clinical area, through original research which advances or extends practice and merits publication.


--- Who should enrol? ---
The MD is offered as a part time programme for Medical Consultants, General Practitioners, Specialist Registrars and other interested medical clinicians. The programme is designed to allow the thesis to be completed over a minimum of two years alongside any existing clinical commitment.

Candidates must provide evidence of personal, professional and educational experience that demonstrates an ability to meet the demands of and benefit from a programme of research training.

In additions candidates wishing to enrol for the award of MD shall satisfy the following criteria:

• Normally have obtained MBBS degrees (Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery) or equivalent from a recognised institution.
• Hold or be eligible for full registration or hold limited registration with the General Medical Council (GMC) or equivalent.
• Normally have three years relevant professional practice experience.
• Be in employment or have arranged employment for the period of research.


--- Resources ---
Whilst undertaking the programme candidates will have access to a variety of learning opportunities to meet their individual learning needs. This is provided by the generic research training programme. An individual programme of skills development and training will be negotiated with the candidate and supervisory team prior to registration.

Candidates will also have regular opportunities to network with peers via regular monitoring meetings and also via StudyNet, the University’s managed learning environment.


--- Supervision ----
Supervision is provided by a supervisory team made up of at least two supervisors, a university academic and a clinical supervisor. The team will have experience of supervision of at least 2 successful doctoral level studies.

Whilst undergoing the programme and in addition to ongoing supervision by the supervisory team, candidates will undergo periodic progress assessments and must provide evidence of progress of the programme of research, including details of achievements to date and future direction of the work, as well as discussing the approach taken and how the work is contributing to clinical practice.


--- What do I do next? ---
• Approach your clinical supervisor with your research idea.
• Contact 2 references (who are not to be involved in your supervisory team)
• Write a synopsis of your proposed project and send it to


--- Application ---
