We deliver the course for the Oxford University Clinical Academic School and it’s available to Oxford Foundation School doctors free of charge.
The course is divided into four modules which run over four Saturday mornings during the Michaelmas and Trinity Terms, at the John Radcliffe Hospital:
Module 1: Research planning: before you start your research project lays the foundation for getting involved in medical research, from basic research conduct principles through to building the evidence base underpinning a research project
Module 2: Research design and protocols introduces the main types of study design and the skills required to critically appraise a research study, and explores the practicalities of writing a protocol
Module 3: Statistical thinking introduces the basics of medical statistics, such as understanding sampling, and making inferences from samples to populations
Module 4: Research publication and dissemination covers the process of getting your research published in peer-reviewed journals or presented at conferences
