Course content

Our online courses allow you to study clinical research in the context of your work. We developed them with the Newcastle Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. They are ideal for health professionals and clinical research support staff. They also suit education and industry professionals who aspire to become a clinical academic.

The courses encourage you to plan, conduct, analyse and write up clinical research in the context of your professional role. You'll learn about and develop clinical research in your workplace. This is the most valuable way of consolidating the theory you'll learn on the course.

To do this you will need to nominate a workplace mentor. They will provide professional and specialist advice and guidance. They'll also support your studies, maintaining academic and clinical links throughout the course.
