New bids for:

MSc Clinical Science (Cardiac, Vascular, Respiratory and Sleep Sciences)

Masters in Clinical Research

 

MSc Clinical Science (Cardiac, Vascular, Respiratory and Sleep Sciences)

We have bid to deliver a new Masters in Clinical Science programme which is built on this firm foundation of health science education and work-based learning and have been invited to interview on 1st June in Birmingham. If successful it will designed to equip graduates with the skills that will enable them to become safe and effective scientists in their chosen designated discipline of clinical science; to prepare graduates for lifelong learning; to foster commitment to continuing professional development and to equip them with an approach to clinical science based on a questioning and rigorous scientific perspective. The curriculum has emerged from a highly effective partnership via a wide-ranging network of clinical specialists in the NHS with whom we work closely and effectively in the delivery of practical and clinically-based teaching in the specific areas of Cardiac, Vascular, Respiratory and Sleep Sciences. Informal feedback from clinical teaching staff working in the NHS on the progress of our Medical and Health Science students undertaking their preparatory programmes has always been extremely positive about how well-equipped our students are for the demands of the NHS. We hope to be invited for interview in early June.

Masters in Clinical Research

We are also bidding for further funding to support the MRes which forms part of our clinical academic career pathway for nurses, midwives & AHPs committed to developing a career in research. It provides the entry point to research training for those with little or no formal research experience or qualifications. It combines a focus on research methods (both qualitative & quantitative) with comprehensive skills training in research management, governance and implementation alongside research career development. The overall aim of the course is to prepare nurses, midwives & AHPs with the requisite knowledge & skills to effectively carry out, manage & deliver clinical research, in order to make an effective contribution to the generation & application of patient-focused research in the clinical context. The MRes Clinical Research draws on the expertise of a wide range of academic & clinical staff, including those employed in joint roles across FoHS & local Trusts. Doctorally qualified staff provide input across all modules, specifically in relation to research methods, ethics & governance, research management, research delivery, knowledge mobilisation, utilisation, project supervision and career development opportunities. In addition, clinical academics, staff from the SCBR and other clinicians support dissertation projects as co-supervisors. The programme also benefits from expert contributions from external organisations, eg South Central RDS & the Wessex HIEC provision in relation to research management & governance, patient and public involvement and research implementation
