We encourage and promote our postgraduate research students to develop and conduct research which supports the global evidence base needed by individuals, health care providers, and organisations when making decisions about maximising health and optimising health care services.

As a postgraduate researcher in the IAHS you will benefit from training and support in a cutting edge research environment.  Our academic groups provide expert input to a range of clinical research topics and this includes input on selecting the appropriate methodological approach, study design, data collection and data analysis.

Skills training

In addition to centrally provided core training, the IAHS organise a seminar series, where postgraduates and staff researchers present their research. Postgraduates are also expected to keep a Personal Development Plant (PDP), and are encouraged to present their work at appropriate national and international conferences.

Core University training includes an induction programme, which gives you a chance to meet key individuals in the College of Life Sciences and Medicine and other new postgraduate researchers, specialist and generic research skills training, and advice on career development.

Teaching opportunities

You will also have the opportunity to contribute to teaching activities by providing paid laboratory, or small group, teaching assistance to undergraduate students, which, as well as developing your teaching skills, is a means of supplementing your income.

Training for such activities is included in the Graduate School's induction programme.
