Course content

There is increasing demand for high quality clinical research to underpin practice, and exciting new career pathways are available for suitably qualified practitioners to lead and develop this research provision.

This course is based in the vibrant research environment of the Centre for Health Research and provides extensive clinical research training for allied health professionals, midwives, nurses and other professionals working in a clinical environment.

The course is suitable for clinicians wishing to pursue a clinical academic career and conforms with the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) framework for this level of study. Clinicians will be prepared for a leadership role in research and may be able to progress to doctoral-level studies.

The School of Health Sciences has been newly granted two health research training awards, securing funding from the NIHR.

Course structure

As a research degree, the research component is greater than the taught part of the course. The course is made up of four taught modules in the early part of the course, and a supervised clinical research project.

The taught component involves a combination of lectures, seminars and workshops, and the research component is supported by a series of workshops and individual tutorials.

Areas of study

A wide-ranging introduction to qualitative and quantitative research design and analysis in healthcare is covered. In addition to this, you will choose to study specific research methodologies in depth, allowing you to focus on those of most relevance to your clinical practice and research interests.

In order to undertake and lead research in the NHS and social care, one of the core modules focuses on areas such as public and patient involvement in research, the production of evidence to support decision-making by policy makers, the legislative requirements of undertaking clinical trials and the ethical and economic issues influencing clinical research.

You will have the opportunity, via a supervised research project, to undertake a piece of clinical research within your own clinical area. This allows the research undertaken to directly contribute to your current clinical practice and feeds directly into service provision.
