Study and Training Opportunities
The Clinical Epidemiology Group offers a number of opportunities for training, studying and career development:
Clinical epidemiological questions constitute a “basic science” for practicing clinicians and those disciplines involved in public health. Academic opportunities for clinicians interested in epidemiology have expanded with the introduction of Modernizing Medical Careers, and Training opportunities exist at:
- Foundation year 2 level (3 month attachment)
- Academic Clinical Fellowship (3 year appointment, expected to lead to Masters degree and PhD)
- Clinical lectureships (4 year training, expected to lead to establishment as independent investigator, and completion of specialist training (CCST) in Public Health, or other clinical discipline)
Enquiries from prospective PhD students with biological, social science, or other quantitative backgrounds are welcome.
Public Health Trainees
Academic attachments are available for trainees.
Members of the group teach on a number of courses within UCL and at other institutions, including the:
- MSc/Diploma in Health and Society: Social Epidemiology
- Erasmus Summer Programme - Markers and Prognostic research
Workshops and Short Courses
