DPhil Resources and Skills Training
The University of Oxford regulations require all graduate research students "to make appropriate use of teaching and learning facilities available within the University". There is considerable expertise within the department, the Medical Sciences Division and the wider university with numerous opportunities for professional development and skills training. These resources provide a unique learning opportunity for DPhil students to acquire the knowledge and skills to complete their research, and ultimately, their thesis.
Provision for graduate students in the Nuffield Department of Population Health includes:
Seminars and Student Support:
- Weekly "Richard Doll Seminars" supported by 10 research centres within the department.
- Weekly "Work in Progress" seminars for DPhil students.
- Athena Swan seminars with keynote speakers.
- Active Research Student Group led by students, running various social and academic events including a termly journal club.
- It may be possible to sit in on some lectures of the MSc in Global Health Science particularly if skills training in statistics or epidemiology are required.
DPhil students are encouraged to pursue a variety of teaching opportunities within the department. All students are required to obtain the support of their supervisor in the first instance and to successfully complete the Teaching Skills Course at the Medical Sciences Division before taking up any opportunities.
