About the Project
The proposed project will: (i) identify the needs of visually impaired people when interacting with health services; and (ii) develop and test interventions to improve their interaction with health services.
While the project may look at any aspect of healthcare, we are particularly interested in medicines usage given the supervisory team’s areas of expertise. Our preference is for a mixed-method project, but we will also consider proposals for qualitative-only or quantitative-only research.
Candidates are expected to hold (or be about to obtain) a minimum upper second class honours degree (or equivalent) in a relevant area, e.g. health services research; vision science; pharmacy; social sciences; design.
For information on how to apply for this project, please visit the Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health Doctoral Academy website (https://www.bmh.manchester.ac.uk/study/research/apply/). Informal enquiries may be made directly to the primary supervisor. On the online application form select PhD Medical / Clinical Science.
For international students we also offer a unique 4 year PhD programme that gives you the opportunity to undertake an accredited Teaching Certificate whilst carrying out an independent research project across a range of biological, medical and health sciences. For more information please visit www.internationalphd.manchester.ac.uk
As an equal opportunities institution we welcome applicants from all sections of the community regardless of gender, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation and transgender status. All appointments are made on merit.
