Surrey’s facilities are amazing, especially the laboratories.
As a student of our unique MD in Clinical and Experimental Medicine, you will be formulating research questions and research activity to address the gaps in the healthcare sector between biomedicine and health care practice.
We provide MD programmes designed to address these gaps, giving our students a distinct and highly valuable learning experience.
Our MD in Clinical and Experimental Medicine is highly responsive to the needs of the healthcare sector. Our unique programme seamlessly links biomedical sciences to health care, will build your understanding of how ‘Big Data’ can be used to improve clinical practice and/or support the translation of clinical and experimental research into ideas and products.
Our spectrum of research ranges from first use of molecules in man (phase I trials) through to real-world evidence studies using routinely collected data.
Our postgraduate researchers are working alongside us on these studies, developing and refining their clinical and research skills. You will undertake a tailored programme of formal research training in methods and methodology.
The School of Biosciences offers a programme of research seminars and you will be encouraged and supported in presenting your work at national and international conferences.
Research for an MD may be carried out jointly in the applicants’ own clinical workplace and/or in the University’s facilities, and may be supervised jointly by a collaborative supervisor from the hospital and supervisors from the University.
Your research area may be in any branch of medicine that links in with our research portfolio, and if registered on a full-time basis, you should expect to commit approximately two years to research and training activities, plus some time to write up the MD thesis and take the viva voce exam.
Research areas are varied, but can include:
