To maintain the high standards of research practice at Cambridge, the University will uphold the commitments outlined in Universities UK’s Concordat to Support Research Integrity.
The Concordat sets out a series of responsibilities for researchers and employers of researchers, compliance with which is now a condition of HEFCE and RCUK funding
Below are some of the guidelines from the central University and these should be read in addition to the Clinical School policies which can be found on the Research Governance website and the Information Governance website.
- Research Integrity Statement
- Good Research Practice Guidelines
- Misconduct in Research
- Policy on the Ethics of Research Involving Human Participants and Personal Data
- Policy on the Use of Animals in Research (where appropriate)
Further information can be found on the Research Integrity page.
The aim of the School is to conduct internationally excellent peer reviewed basic, clinical and translational research relating to a diverse range of medical conditions and treatments.
The Clinical School offers students a first class scientific approach to medicine combined with educational programmes that emphasise the development of excellence in the clinical, communication, attitudinal and practical skills required for good medical practice.
Graduate Studies (Higher Degrees)
The Departments and Institutes of the School of Clinical Medicine offer a wide range of research and taught courses, including: research only, research with taught elements, higher doctorates and higher degrees by special regulations.
