Course content

You can choose from Southampton’s full and part-time PhDs in a broad range of specialist areas in Medicine, including biomedicine, research in clinical environments and population-based statistical studies. Our PhDs are aimed at students who are enthusiastic about developing their careers in scientific or clinical research, and will give you the high quality training in research-related skills and professional/transferable skills enabling you to become a confident, independent researcher.

Our part-time Doctor of Medicine degree programmes are aimed at students with a clinical background, who hold a medical qualification that is recognised by the UK General Medical Council (GMC) and are employed in a hospital or institution associated with Medicine at Southampton. You will get the opportunity to study a project that is relevant to your clinical discipline whilst working with a wide variety of both clinical and non-clinical researchers. The University of Southampton is internationally recognised for its work in Life Sciences, of which Medicine plays a huge part. As part of our thriving postgraduate community, you will get the opportunity to collaborate with colleagues from a variety of interdisciplinary areas, as well as the NHS or external funders, on research that is having a direct impact on society.
