About Clinical Science at University of Liverpool

The aim of the programme is to provide training at Masters level for intercalating medical undergraduates, medical and science graduates and career academics in- training, so meeting regional and national demands for research oriented skills in these disciplines.

A key element of the programme design is the development of relevant, appropriate research skills, in addition to a systematic understanding and critical awareness of the research process, which can also prepare the student for doctoral research training and satisfies the criteria of the Research Councils for Master of Research training.

The programme aims to provide training in transferable skills, techniques, and knowledge appropriate to postgraduate research students at Masters level. Students will develop the capacity for individual work and teamwork in an interdisciplinary research environment, conducting independent research through practical experience and formulating appropriate research strategies, methods, data collection and analysis via three 12 week research projects. Communication skills, both oral and written, will also be a focus, enabling students to engage in both research debate (with scientific and lay audiences) and the peer review of journal publications. Students will be enabled to take the first postgraduate steps leading to future roles in biomedical research in the clinical, industrial, and public sectors, and will have been appropriately prepared for entry into a PhD programme, if appropriate.

The programme has a modular structure and is delivered by lectures, tutorials, seminars, workshops and individual tuition for the research projects.
