Rehabilitation and Healthcare Research Centre for Doctoral Training


The new Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Rehabilitation and Healthcare Research (RHR) is offering eight PhD or MPhil training opportunities to a wide range of clinicians, including occupational therapists, clinical psychologists, health psychologists, neuropsychologists, nurses, doctors, health economists, medical statisticians, physiotherapists, and speech and language therapists

Programme overview

The programme will help prospective students establish connections to the industry, access generic training provided by the Graduate School and School of Medicine and provide opportunities for work experience and clinical placements. 

The programme will train the next generation of clinicians in:

  • translational and applied clinical research in stroke rehabilitation
  • health of older people
  • long-term conditions
  • community rehabilitation

The core training programme – organised over two days – focuses on the development, evaluation of efficacy and implementation of complex interventions. Examples and experiences of centre members' research programmes are used to illustrate learning and expose students to a wealth of knowledge and practical experience from academics with national and international reputations in their field.

Entry requirements

Upper-second-class honours degree or international equivalent in a subject such as epidemiology, medicine, sciences and statistics, or degrees from allied health professions
