MSc in Clinical Trials
The MSc in Clinical Trials is a two year part-time distance learning course that provides in-depth training in the principles and practice of conducting large-scale, randomised clinical trials. The course has been developed in collaboration with the European Heart Academy, and the European Society of Cardiology Working Group on Cardiovascular Pharmacotherapy.
Who is the course FOR?
Excellent graduates in medicine, biomedical sciences, statistics or other relevant background, who wish to expand their knowledge of clinical trials and apply this within their own careers.
The MSc in Clinical Trials will provide students with the skills to design and conduct their own large-scale, randomised clinical trials. We may select up to 35 participants for the course each year. The number of selected participants may be fewer in 2020.
Why a distance-learning course?
The online teaching methods will allow students, who we expect to be working professionals, to pursue an Oxford MSc while managing their other commitments. All lectures and module reading will be available online for students to access at any time. Course seminar groups will be established to fit students’ busy schedules.
The residential components of the course will be held in Oxford to enable students to meet in person, build the cohort and establish a professional network.
