UCL Institute for Liver & Digestive Health



The UCL Institute for Liver and Digestive Health offers numerous postgraduate training courses throughout the year at University College Hospital and The Royal Free Hospital. 



Clinical and Research Fellows

Hepatology at the Royal Free Hospital has a long tradition in hosting and training clinical and research fellows from all over the world. This tradition continues to-date and we take pride in the fellows that have trained at this hospital.

Each year we advertise two senior clinical posts for a fixed period of twelve months. These posts are fully funded, are mainly orientated to clinical training and are available through competitive interview.

We also welcome fully self-funded clinical and research fellows for clinical or basic research provided they are eligible for GMC registration. The ideal period of stay is one year to ensure the completion of a research project and academic output; however, we also consider shorter durations of stay.

The candidates will be allocated to a principal investigator depending on their research interest, or alternatively can choose the principal investigator they are interested in collaborating with.

Applied Medical Sciences BSc and MSc

The course is directed within the Division of Medicine by Professor Kevin Moore and Dr David Spratt and aims to equip scientists with a strong knowledge of clinical medicine and the ability to develop scientific ideas into clinical concepts and enhance the translation of science into medicine.

This fusion of basic and clinical science will enable graduates to work at the highest levels in biomedical research, the pharmaceutical industry, biotechnology, clinical trials and hospital management.  Students will be exposed to a variety of different disciplines in Year 1, with one month work experience in Year 3; students will be able develop a course which suits their needs and talents and to pursue a variety of avenues of scientific learning.

This course will generate graduates who are innovative and inventive, and who can enable scientific discoveries to make a difference in medicine. Our graduates will lead Clinical Science in the future. 

iBSc in Clinical Sciences

The iBSc in Clinical Sciences is part of UCL Medical School's intercalated BSc programme and is designed to develop the student’s interest, knowledge and understanding of clinical science and its application to medicine. The course will offer an insight into state-of-the-art biomedical science, including exposure to leading research scientists, research methodology, the translation of basic science research into novel therapies for human disease, and the philosophy, governance and social implications of health research. There will also be basic training on clinical examination, history taking and clinical skills. All students will also be required to undertake an original research project.

Please feel free to contact either the programme tutor or the course administrator if you have any queries about the course.
