Course content

You will complete a research methods module (unless you have relevant previous research experience, in which you may be exempted) and then identify a research project in liaison with a Birmingham academic, probably from the core Physician Associate faculty.

You will then be supervised through gathering data, analysis and write-up and hopefully publication.
