Course content

The multi-disciplinary research environment with strong NHS and NIHR partnerships means we are an inspiring environment for postgraduate students.

We have expertise and ongoing research using both quantitative and qualitative methods, systematic reviews and clinical trials in a variety of community, primary and secondary care contexts. Examples of our current work include the management of musculoskeletal problems in primary and intermediate care, the use of urgent dental care services, orthoptic and vision services and palliative care.

Our research partners

We have a number of key partnerships that provide excellent research and educational opportunities for our postgraduates. These partners include NIHR CLAHRC NWC, Liverpool Clinical Commissioning Group and other research groups in IPHS and the wider Faculty and University.

Clinical academic links such as these mean we're well placed to support and host PhD studentships provided by UKCRN partners, such as the MRC, ESRC, DH and EPSRC.

Our researchers collaborate with academic colleagues in Public Health, Psychological Sciences and other departments across the university which provides a rich inter-disciplinary environment for our students. There are particular overlaps with the Psychology of Healthcare group.
