It is recognised by the Research Councils, universities and employers that a gap has opened up between the skills possessed by new medical graduates and the skills normally expected on entry to a research degree or an industrial research career. The MRes in Medical Sciences has been specifically designed to bridge this gap.

The purpose of the MRes is to provide a Masters-level programme that will equip students from the medical and dental sciences with the skills and knowledge they need to pursue a research-based career in academic medicine. It focuses on medical research rather than biological science research.

Students interrupt their clinical training after Year 4 to undertake the programme.

Applications are also welcome from other eligible candidates

Module details

The programme comprises of four compulsory components

* Research skills units
* Clinical Masterclass
* Tutorial/Seminar
* Two full time research placements (10 and 25 weeks), including one written project and one final report

Students usually stay in the same research group for both placements, which has the advantage of allowing them to become an integrated part of the team and, by progressing through each project, gradually increase the depth and complexity of their research.

Each student will be allocated a personal supervisor within their research group and also attend a series of 1:1 meetings with the course director or deputy to ensure learning goals are being achieved.
