HARP PhD Programme
Health Advances in Underrepresented Populations and Diseases
HARP is an exciting new PhD Programme for all health professionals based in London’s vibrant East End. The programme is open to any health professional, regardless of personal background, who is enthusiastic and can show their ability to conduct world-class research that tackles health inequality.
What is HARP?
HARP is a doctoral training programme for health professionals, offering full time salary and consumables for three years. It is a partnership of QMUL and City supported by Social Action for Health and funded by the Wellcome Trust, with support from Barts Charity, the Trustees of the Medical College of St Bartholomew’s Hospital, Barts Health NHS Trust and East London Foundation Trust.
In addition to the PhD itself, HARP offers a one year Pre-Doctoral Training Phase for people with no previous formal research experience to gain exposure and to be more competitive when applying for PhDs. After the PhD, we offer a two year Post-Doctoral Support Phase which includes some salary support for research enrichment activities.
