This course has run since 2011, previously being integrated with the MPhil TMAT courses and taken part-time over two years. It has been re-launched in 2014 as a full-time one year course, based in the Cambridge Institute of Public Health’s Department of Public Health and Primary Care. More than half of the curriculum is shared with the MPhils in Public Health and Epidemiology. The aim of the course to provide students with theoretical knowledge and skills as well as practical research experience to launch an academic clinical career in primary care. 

The course draws on local strengths in working with large databases, primary care-based clinical trials and a wide range of other appropriate methods of quantitative and qualitative data collection and analyses. Throughout the course students are able to draw on the research expertise within the Institute of Public Health and wider expertise in the University. 

The course is open to all graduates with a relevant first degree, but is particularly aimed at Trainee GPs, and GPs working in the NHS who wish to gain a fuller understanding of the disciplines at the foundation of academic primary care. A variety of teaching and learning methods are used during the course including lectures, practical exercises, one-to-one supervisions and self-directed learning. The course includes a research-based dissertation which will be undertaken and completed during the year. We encourage successful students to progress to a PhD.
