This programme aims to give you a firm foundation in biomedical research methodology, focused on translational cardiovascular medicine, by enhancing your knowledge, understanding, critical awareness and practical research experience in this area. You will be given a theoretical grounding in the scientific principles and clinical applications of translational cardiovascular medicine, as well as intensive training in research methodology, experimental design, statistical analyses, data interpretation and science communication.
The core of the programme is a six-month research project, conducted within one of the University of Bristol's internationally recognised translational cardiovascular medicine research groups. Opportunities will be available in laboratory or clinical-based investigations.
The programme is suitable for clinical and bioscience graduates who would like to develop their research skills within this exciting field. It is also suitable for clinical students interested in pursuing a research-intensive intercalation option after three years of study.
Fees for 2020/21
We charge an annual tuition fee. Fees for 2020/21 are as follows:
- UK/EU: full-time
- UK/EU: part-time (two years)
