Research in Health Professions Education (RiHPE)

The programme is comprised of 2 supported research degrees, which give candidates full training in research methods and then the opportunity to complete a short research project (MRes) or to conduct detailed doctorate level research (DProf). Candidates will normally be undertaking research in their place of practice, on topics that are directly relevant to their roles as educators and healthcare professionals. All candidates will be given full face-to-face training on the theory, planning and practice of research before undertaking their research dissertation. The programme is suitable for anyone who wishes to undertake rigorous, practice-focused research into the education of health professionals. This may include doctors, nurses, allied health staff, academic educators, social care professionals and psychologists. Suitable for trainees.

Entry requirements

There is also provision for admission that takes into account work experience when the applicant has an undergraduate degree but not at a 2.1 Honours level. Most applicants will have an equivalent qualification in an area of professional practice. English language requirement: IELTS score 6.5.
