PhD

A higher degree which medical students may pursue if they have a particular research interest and can secure funding. PhD studies will usually follow on from the intercalated year and will involve a further three years of research leading to a PhD. In some cases it may be possible to integrate a PhD into a medical degree. This allows students to gain both a PhD and a basic medical degree. For those following a “pure science” route, a PhD takes at least four years of study after a university degree. In the first year, the candidate obtains a Masters of Research (MRes), which has lecture and laboratory rotation components. The PhD should be completed within the next 3 years.
