PhDs

The Southampton Primary Medical Care group offers a broad spectrum of expertise in both 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 have robust training including research methods, statistics and epidemiology and research ethics and governance.

We have a PhD support group and an annual PCPS PhD Research Conference where students can present and share their work.

Primary Care at Southampton currently has 9 PhD students and a total of 16 students in our Primary Care and Population Sciences School. 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.

PCPS PhD conference 2020

Our annual PCPS PhD conference will be taking place on Monday 20 January 2020 9-2pm at Southampton General Hospital, IDS Building.

As at previous events, PhD students from PCPS will be presenting their research to a mixed audience of PhDs, supervisors and PCPS staff. The programme will also include time for feedback and networking.

Previous events have proved to be a very successful forum for sharing research ideas and for supporting our junior researchers.  It is a required part of PhD training that PhD students attend the conference. We are also keen for ALL members of PCPS to attend the day to support the PhD students within the Unit. So please make sure that this date is in your diary. 

Order of the day and further information will follow in due course as presentations are still being scheduled.

Please accept your outlook invite to confirm your attendance, if you have not received an invitation please contact Elena E.Alcoholado-Martinez@soton.ac.uk

5th Annual PhD Conference – 21st January 2019 - 9am-2pm at the Institute of Development Sciences (IDS) Building, Southampton General Hospital.

All PhD and MD students supervised by members of PCPS were given the opportunity to present their research. The whole department was invited and the even was well attended.

Eleven students delivered presentations across topics such as coffee consumption and liver health, attitudes around long-term antidepressant use, experiences of active surveillance for prostate cancer, perceptions of acne treatment, and sleep problems in children.

The conference highlighted the variety of quantitative and qualitative methods used to conduct research within the department.

Students were given the opportunity to network over lunch with the  audience, and further discuss their research. The event was extremely successful, and gave the students a great opportunity to share their  research ideas and receive feedback in front of a mixed audience of fellow students, supervisors, and PCPS staff.   

Thank you to Stephanie Hughes for organising this event.

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