Integrated healthcare: from research to policy and practice

Exciting Opportunities for Health, Social Science and Humanities Graduates

This 4 year structured PhD Programme has an annual intake of postgraduate scholars. Its establishment in 2007 was possible through funding from the Health Research Board. The programme is a joint initiative of senior academic staff from the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, Trinity College Dublin and University College Cork. They constitute a grouping called the Health Services Research Institute. Students on the course have a range of academic and clinical backgrounds. We welcome applicants with an interest in carrying out research on health services and population health in Ireland. Full-time and part-time completion of the thesis are both possible.

* Relevant taught modules
