Medical Sciences & Translational Research PhD with integrated studies in Engagement for Impact

This four-year PhD programme (also referred to as PhD with Integrated Studies in Medical Sciences with Engagement), launched in 2020, combines medical science and translational research with integrated and credited teaching in science communication, public engagement, patient involvement, data design and informatics, via established MSc courses and/or new Engagement for Impact courses. Our vision is to teach a generation of researchers equipped to address and solve real-world problems through excellent science and who have the engagement and impact skills we believe will give them an edge in their future careers.
