The Primary Care Research Centre offers a broad spectrum of expertise both in methodologies and clinical topic areas. We are keen to attract graduates from all these disciplines to carry out postgraduate research. Students have at least 2 PhD supervisors with expertise in the field and receive core and tailored training including research methods, statistics and epidemiology and research ethics and governance.

Many of our former PhD students remain with us as Early Career Researchers and there is excellent integration of PhD students with the rest of the department through seminars, informal networking and integration of PhD projects with wider research themes. In addition we have a PhD support group and an annual PPM PhD Research Conference where students can present and share their work.

The Primary Care Research Centre currently has 6 PhD students and a total of 17 students within the School of Primary Care, Population Sciences & Medical Education. Our students are undertaking a broad range of work, some of their web profiles can be viewed on this page here. 
Please also see all our Student and Projects document in the 'Useful downloads' section below.

Funding opportunities in conjunction with the NIHR School for Primary Care Research can be found here and with the Wellcome Trust here.

Annual PPM PhD conference 18 Jan 2021 9am-2pm


PhD students from PPM presented their research to a mixed audience of PhDs, supervisors and PPM staff.

7 of our PhDs presented their work virtually this year. The event included research of many different topics and different research methods. It was very successful with positive comments and discussions from both staff and students. Our PhD's enjoyed having the opportunity to present, receive feedback and answer questions. 

Thank you to Samantha Hornsey, Elizabeth Taylor, Elena Alcoholado and Jane Cousins for organising.

You can view the conference programme in 'Useful Downloads'.
