This session will provide introduction to and answer any questions about MB-PhD component of the joint Edinburgh-Glasgow Clinical Research Training Programme funded by CRUK. In 2021 the application deadline for MB-PhD positions is 29 March.  

Four fully funded PhD positions per year for highly motivated Edinburgh University and Glasgow University MBChB students on completion of their intercalated BMedSci/BSc.

This is part of the TRACC the joint Edinburgh - Glasgow clinical academic programme funded by Cancer Research UK, and involves significant cross-city co-operation. Successful candidates will be closely mentored by senior academic staff, will be placed into top research laboratories of their choice and will complete a three year PhD before returning back to fourth year of their MBChB course.
