(Medicine and surgery)
University of Manchester evaluation:
Medicine and surgery evaluation:
Our MD Medicine programme enables you to undertake a research project that will improve understanding of Medicine. MD study at The University of Manchester is a challenging yet rewarding experience. You will have access to first-class facilities and work within a vibrant research community across the University and partner NHS Trust sites. There are opportunities for MD students to transfer to the PhD programme following rigorous assessment at the end-of-year report stage of the programme. Any transfer to the PhD programme is dependent on continued funding for the period of the programme and your capacity to complete the extended PhD programme before any return to your clinical duties. Applicants who are classified as overseas for tuition fee purposes may be eligible to pay the equivalent Home tuition fee rate. To qualify for this, applicants must hold a valid NHS contract with a University of Manchester affiliated NHS Trust for each full 12-month registration period. Applicants should note that this subsidised fee can only be applied to the MD programme and any change of programme will require the full international fee to be paid. Applicants whose medical training was undertaken outside of the UK/Ireland must hold a medical qualification that is recognised for registration by the General Medical Council of the United Kingdom and be currently working in the NHS with a potential supervisor. North West Deanery Trainees The University of Manchester and its partner NHS Trusts have a wide range of research opportunities for North West Deanery trainees. Trainees need to have sufficient time out of the programme to fulfil the specified time commitment required for registration on an MD programme. Trainees registered on a full-time research programme may, with approval from their supervisory team, undertake clinical duties limited to one clinical session per week and occasional weekend on-call duties. Projects MD projects may be specified in advance, with applications encouraged for pre-defined research studies. Alternatively, we encourage research proposals from applicants seeking MD places through direct contact with academics and research groups. Often, the most rewarding projects are those developed in partnership between applicants and potential supervisors in overlapping areas of interest.
Applicants for admission must hold an MBChB degree or equivalent medical degree. The nature of the research project must require the candidate to have specialist clinical knowledge and/or skills in order to complete at least one aspect (e.g. recruitment/assessment of patients, acquisition of experimental samples, experimental procedures, interpretation of findings) of the study. Consequently, it is expected that all MD candidates will have a clinician as part of the supervisory team. Applicants (including international students) will need to be working in the NHS already and have identified a supervisor and project in order to apply.
IELTS: 7.0 (speaking and writing 6.5 and no other element below 6.0)
