Course content

The MSc in Clinical Research is an in-depth training programme which builds on the introduction to clinical research in the PgCert and the training in evidence-based medicine and specialist skills gained in the PgDip.

The programme provides an introduction to clinical research and applied methodological skills and enables you to translate research into practice. It can be taken as a one, two or three year programme.

You will develop and undertake a research project designed, delivered and submitted as a dissertation. This project is undertaken in your own professional context, under academic supervision.
