Course content

An MRes in Clinical Science at UEA is the ideal way for you to develop a research-related element in your career whether you're a doctor, nurse or health professional. It will give you the skills, awareness and discipline you need to carry out effective research to the highest level in a patient-centered, ethically sound way.

The course will give you a broader, more considered approach to specialist areas of medical research, and develop both your practical and scientific skills. It will give you a deeper understanding of underlying theories and the importance of critical review in evidence-based medicine. It will also improve your confidence and help you communicate better as a medical or health professional.

Clinical Science is diverse and interest driven and we encourage you to be self-motivated and independent in defining your areas of study. The MRes is designed to give you the scope to carry out any kind of research you choose – whether it’s to create and implement new drugs and vaccines, or deliver the best possible health care. Your aim is to carry through your research to its conclusion. In doing so, you will gain an appreciation of the huge breadth of medicine, the benefits of research and the value that you and other health professionals can bring to the advancement of knowledge.
