This Primary Care Clinicians PhD programme will contribute to building a sustainable, multi-professional clinical academic workforce. This will underpin developments in primary care practice by providing evidence from research and a cadre of excellent primary care researchers who will support primary care to develop and thrive as it addresses future (and current) challenges.
Led by the NIHR School for Primary Care Research (NIHR SPCR), the new PhD programme is a collaboration between the Universities of Bristol, Cambridge, Exeter, Keele, Manchester, Nottingham, Oxford, Queen Mary University of London, Southampton and University College London.
Working across 10 departments of primary care provides extraordinary critical mass enabling a broad and inclusive supervisory pool – which is particularly important because primary care research encompasses many disciplines, epistemologies and methodologies.
Applications are invited from nurses, midwives, allied health professionals, general practitioners and other health care clinicians working in primary care wanting to study for a PhD. Up to five PhDs will be funded. Applicants can either propose their own project or can choose from one of the projects available across our 10 members. Full details about the programme and the list of available projects and the application form will be available here on Friday 14 the September 2022.
A Webinar about the scheme will be held on 17 October 2023 11.30am to 12.30pm, details and a registration form will be available on the website
The application window will open on September 20th with the closing date being 12 noon 20th December 2022. Interviews will be held on Monday 6th February 2023. Successful applicants will be starting their doctorates in October 2023.
