From Professor Pip Logan, Head of Division:
We have a dynamic research portfolio that has gained both national and international recognition with funding from charities, National Institute for Health Research, research councils, industry and European awards. Our studies range from the theoretical underpinning of rehabilitation practice, understanding older people’s health, the development and evaluation of complex interventions and the implementation of research knowledge into changing practice and improving health.
Our research outputs were specifically commended in REF 2014, our unit of assessment’s impact statements were described as “exemplary” and its research environment were “of world leading quality in terms of their vitality and sustainability”.
We have a thriving group of postgraduate students in a newly established Centre for Doctoral Training Rehabilitation and Healthcare Research, provide health care of the elderly training to undergraduate medical students and deliver the Masters in Rehabilitation Psychology and Masters in Health Psychology courses.
