This programme provides you with the opportunity to work within a world class Phase 1 cancer clinical trials unit and, through a mix of taught and experiential learning, to master the discipline of experimental cancer medicine.
You will spend a year as a member of the Experimental Cancer Medicine Team at The Christie. During this year, you will participate in four structured taught modules.
Alongside the taught elements, you will be allocated to one or more clinical trials that are being conducted by the Christie experimental cancer medicine team. You will have a named trainer and be exposed to tasks required in the setup, delivery, interpretation and audit of a clinical study.
As a nursing and physician student enrolled on this programme, you will be expected to participate in patient care, with physicians and nursing staff participating in new and follow-on patient clinics, treatment and care-giving episodes with patients.
For clinical trials coordinators, no direct patient contact is envisaged and duties will involve clinical trial setup, protocol amendments, database setup, data entry, costing and billing for clinical research.
You are required to have a 2:1 BSc in the life sciences, pharmaceutics, biotechnology or pharmacy from any UK university, or an overseas qualification of equivalent standard as approved by The University of Manchester. We also require you to hold existing qualifications to conduct clinical research as a General Medical Council-registered physician, Nursing and Midwifery Council-registered nurse or clinical trial coordinator, including evidence of current Good Clinical Practice training. Relevant experience and commitment to oncology research will be beneficial. International students must have an equivalent classification and should refer to entry requirements from your country for further information.
