About Clinical Research at Bournemouth University

MSc Clinical Research gives healthcare professionals the opportunity to develop the skills necessary to design, carry out and report a research study that is clinically applicable, scientifically sound and relevant to patients. Throughout the course you will be able to focus on your area of clinical interest making it relevant to what you do.

Clinical research is a fundamental part of providing evidence-based healthcare however, it is important that this research is based on areas of investigation that are of relevance to both clinicians and patients alike. This course has been designed to take healthcare professionals through the research process from formulating a suitable research question to designing the study and collecting appropriate data, and reporting the findings to different audiences. All of this will provide opportunities to work with academics and clinicians experienced in conducting clinical research.

There will be a strong focus on involving members of the public and patient groups in your research. As such, you will be given training on the different ways they can be involved throughout the whole process.

The work you will do as part of this course will provide opportunities for you to create research outputs (e.g. manuscripts for publication) to contribute to a portfolio of research experience suitable for applications related to future research study (e.g. NIHR Clinical Doctoral Fellowship).

From 2019 onwards, this course will also be available to be taken as individual CPD units. Contact us to find out more.
