The aim of the course is to provide high quality education and training in health research for those who might be engaged in it. It aims to address an identified gap in the educational needs of doctors planning a career in research, or as preparation for a PhD or MD or as part of the preparations for an existing research programme.
The course objectives are:
To provide robust, advanced education and training in research and practice. To develop independent researchers of the future, who are able to progress to independent research, to a PHD and to further postdoctoral research. To promote the ethos of safe and ethical research. To promote research awareness and activity in healthcare. To contribute to the NHS and HEKSS drives to develop an able and research active clinical community with advanced levels of knowledge and skills which will drive future healthcare research and informed practice.

Academic Clinical Fellows at Brighton and Sussex Medical School will be automatically accepted on the course. Applications from other NHS research registrars, doctors in the pharmaceutical industry, and others employed in a setting where medical research is a core function of their day-to-day activity will also be considered. In order to maintain the high research degree completion rate of BSMS, non-ACF applicants will only be accepted if they can demonstrate an ongoing research programme in which they are currently involved, award of a research grant, or employer support for a locally funded research project intended for publication.
