About Primary Care, PhD - at University of Nottingham

Primary Care research has particular strengths in the use and delivery of health services, especially in terms of analysis of large data sets from general practice and other sources, and the evaluation of interventions.

Our main research activities are in the following fields:

    • injury prevention


    • applied genetics


    • clinical epidemiology


    • diversity and inequalities


    • medicines management


  • smoking cessation

There are also opportunities to undertake supervised research into medical education, including undergraduate and postgraduate medical curriculum development and evaluation, the use of virtual learning environments, and online assessment in medical education and problem based learning. However, original proposals for any area of medical education will be considered.

The NIHR Research Design Service for the East Midlands (within the Division of Primary Care) offers supervision in research methodologies including clinical trials, multi-level modelling, case-control studies and survival analyses. Areas of research activities are health service delivery and organisation; clinical innovation, particularly in primary care; and clinical trials in primary care and dermatology.
