Health Research

The course develops skilled and knowledgeable multi-disciplinary health care researchers, able to understand and confidently use research techniques appropriate to their practice/subject area. Helping students to become conversant with approaches used by other social and healthcare researchers is also key as well as developing practical research skills. The course builds capacity and capability in individuals, and the healthcare workforce more generally, by promoting lifelong learning.

There is a focus on both skills, experience and an emphasis on proactive team and network collaborations.
