About the course

Make a significant contribution to your clinical specialty with the published research you’ll produce on a programme designed specifically for medical graduates in clinical practice.

On this challenging programme, you’ll develop a research proposal, along the lines of an empirical scientific project that’s relevant to your clinical specialty.

This can be related to any branch of medicine including general practice, acute hospital medicine, community health, public health and mental health.

If you can identify a clinical problem for which there is a gap in the evidence base, and have in mind a research project that could help address this problem, this will form the basis of your doctorate.
