Dphil posters

A full-time three year doctoral programme intended to train new researchers in Population Health (including the Big Data Institute)

The DPhil in Population Health is intended to provide candidates with training in research, in-depth knowledge and understanding of their chosen population health research project, and to prepare them for a career in academia. Candidates for the DPhil come from many backgrounds including medical practice, epidemiology, statistics, health services research, public health, economics, and ethics.

The Nuffield Department of Population Health (NDPH) offers candidates the opportunity to work closely with world-leading researchers.  Students are invited to attend a range of events, planned both by the Research Student Group and the wider department.  These include seminars, Masterclasses, social and networking events, and the annual Department Symposium.
