Primary Care Clinical Sciences MSc by Research

Course Description

The RAE 2008 results place the University's Primary Care researchers as some of the top in the UK. With a world-class research programme focusing on the impact of major diseases among the population, our researchers also have significant expertise in smoking cessation, clinical decision-making, exercise and how ethnicity affects health.

Primary Care Clinical Sciences at Birmingham is one of the largest centres for academic primary care in the UK and has a very substantial teaching role.

Primary care research focuses upon three main clinical areas:

Cardiovascular disease

Cancer and chronic disease

Behavioural medicine and mental health research

These are supported by cross-cutting methodology expertise in health services research, research on health related quality of life, trials methodology, and qualitative research. In addition, we have a strong cross-cutting theme on ethnicity and health. The Department has invested in and supports its research programme through the Primary Care Clinical Research and Trials Unit (PCCRTU) and large Primary Care Research Network (MidReC).

Primary Care is a major research strength within the College of Medical and Dental Sciences, as evidenced by the fact 65% of our 2008 Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) submission in this area was considered internationally excellent or world leading, including 35% of world leading quality. The RAE 2008 results place the University's primary care researchers as amongst the top in the UK.

Our research crosses all stages of the translational spectrum, from early stage studies through to implementation research and service delivery research. We do research on devices, pharmacological, psychological, and organisational interventions to improve health.
