University of Exeter

The global burden of disease and challenges of safe and accessible health services means that more than ever practitioners and researchers need skills for developing, testing, evaluating and implementing evidence-based health care in highly complex situations. This programme provides you with the skills and knowledge to tackle these challenges.

You will be taught by a multi-disciplinary team of expert tutors and guest lecturers from a diverse range of clinical and research backgrounds, with a blend of tutorials, work-based training and research exchange visits. Topics such as patient and public involvement, collaborative working, evidence-based practice, complex interventions, health economics, clinical trials and medical statistics will provide a common thread that runs throughout the programme.

Teaching for the programme takes place over two full days (Tuesday and Wednesday) for the full-time route. Teaching will take place between 9am and 5pm, however specific times may vary from module-to-module. Each module runs over 1 academic term, with 11 contact days per module timetabled with teaching staff.
