Clinical Research

Course Description

Programme description

This programme is available for September or January start.

The Clinical Research programme provides a credit-bearing training opportunity for academic clinical fellows and clinical lecturers in medicine and dentistry. The programme aims to:

* prepare you for a career in academic clinical research
* provide formal training in the regulatory and ethical framework for clinical research
* develop key skills in research design, statistical analysis, and critical review
* encourage you to engage with public and patients, communicate effectively with different audiences, and understand the importance of communication to the public perception of research
* equip you to undertake independent research, including critical thinking and consideration of research impact
* meet the requirement of the NIHR and other funders for academic clinical fellows to undertake relevant training in research methodology

Programme outline

The programme includes a 60-credit section (four 15-credit modules) leading to PG Certificate in Clinical Research, or forming Part 1 (compulsory) of a PG Diploma or MRes in Clinical Research. Part 1 covers the key generic skills and knowledge to prepare students wishing to undertake clinical research. This includes modules on ethics and regulation, data management and statistics, clinical study design, and options on practical aspects of clinical studies and communication and public engagement. Modules may be shared with other programmes.

Part 2 of the programme comprises three optional 60-credit modules on literature research, a practical project, and writing a grant proposal. Successful completion of one or two modules (in addition to Part 1) would lead to award of PG Diploma or MRes respectively. All three modules require you to critically review a research field and prepare dissertations requiring insight and novel interpretation of material.

You will be permitted to register on any of the courses at the outset, with the option of transferring to a higher course, subject to conditions.
