Program Description

PG Diploma Clinical Research

University of East Anglia Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences

If you have an enquiring mind and a thirst for knowledge, then this could be the course for you. A qualification in Clinical Research will give you the tools and skills to realise your own personal and professional goals. The course is an exciting mix of modules that exposes you to multi-disciplinary health care approaches. But it can also be tailored to your own specific needs and interests, ensuring that what you learn is most relevant to your career.

We will help you to develop the skills to conduct critical analysis of evidence that underpins health care, and to carry out in-depth qualitative and quantitative research relevant to your own practice. You will also be able to develop leadership qualities to help you deliver the best and most effective service, in whatever field of health care you operate. This course may be taken on a full or part time basis, and is an ideal vehicle as a precursor to undertaking a PhD.
