Course content

Our MRes Clinical Science is your chance to experience the reality of cutting-edge clinical research. You’ll develop a broader, more considered approach to a specific area of medical research, gaining expertise in the intellectual and practical skills of scientific research in the process. And you’ll gain a deeper understanding of the underlying theories, and greater comprehension of the importance of critical review in the practice of evidence-based medicine. 

Driven by the research interests of our students, our programme is incredibly diverse. You choose the project that you want to work on, and we provide the close expert mentoring and the learning to help you develop advanced research skills. 

Whether you want to explore the design and deployment of new drugs, or you have a desire to optimise the delivery of primary care, we can accommodate you. And the research skills you’ll acquire will be entirely transferrable, so your project doesn’t have to fall within a discipline you aspire to working in. 

Your year with us will be dominated by your dissertation research project, and you will also undertake four learning modules. Our approach throughout is designed to promote a thorough understanding of the diversity and breadth of medicine, the benefits of research, and the value every health professional can add by contributing to the advancement of collective medical knowledge. 

It’s our hope that you will find your experience of conducting your own research enjoyable, liberating, fulfilling and useful, and that the skills you learn will provide you with a research base to build a career upon for the foreseeable future.
