PhD Conference 18 January 2023

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 16 students within the School of Primary Care, Population Sciences & Medical Education. Our students are undertaking a broad range of work and their web profiles can be found below. Please also see all our Student and Projects document.

Studentships in conjunction with the NIHR School for Primary Care Research can be found here when applications are open.
