Online for 2021/22 academic year
Our face-to-face Clinical Research courses have been suspended for 2021 entry. This means that we won’t be able to accept applications for 2021 entry.
You can apply for some of our e-learning courses for 2021 entry:
Our courses are for professionals in many different areas of the health service. This includes doctors and NMAHPs.
Our programmes encourage you to plan and conduct clinical research in the context of your own role. You'll develop skills in clinical research in your area of expertise. This is the most valuable way of consolidating the theory you'll learn on the course.
In the final year of your master's, you will carry out your own research project. It is useful to have a workplace mentor for this. This may be someone who can provide professional and specialist advice and guidance. We will provide an academic supervisor to maintain academic support for your research.
You'll gain a strong theoretical as well as practical knowledge of clinical research. This is to help support your current or future professional as well as leadership roles. Our programmes are UK based but globally aware. They reflect international collaborations and their requirements.
Our courses are suitable for many clinical research topics, including:
- medical surgical
- mental health
- allied health care topics
