Summary

The Medicine MRes is a strongly research-based course, which gives you the training and opportunity to develop as a scientist or scientifically-literate clinician. Our course is designed to help you gain a comprehensive understanding of the concepts and techniques relevant to medical research and to enable you to develop the ability to critically and creatively evaluate current issues in medicine and health. You’ll gain experience in formulating new hypotheses and exploring the causes and consequences of diseases by conducting rigorous scientific research in a laboratory, with patients or with patient data.

**Make an impact**
Medical research plays an enormous role in improving patient care and outcomes. Through our course you’ll significantly grow your specialist skills and knowledge, gaining the experience to feel equipped for a career in the field, contributing to impactful research that will improve the lives of patients.

**Course highlights**
A nine-month research project helps you to develop specialised knowledge, as well as design and undertake a substantial piece of publishable research. You’ll be based in one of our internationally-renowned institutes and be supervised by leading experts in their field. You can choose from a range of research opportunities in applied health, cancer and pathology, cardiovascular, genes and development, medical education and musculoskeletal topics.

We strongly encourage all applicants to check our list of research projects before applying. The list of research projects for 2020-21 will become available in December 2019. We invite you to contact the supervisory team to discuss the projects and state your three projects of choice in your personal statement. Projects will be allocated and applicants notified of allocations in July 2020. The list of research projects is available on request at MResMed@leeds.ac.uk

More information The School of Medicine is a major international centre for research and education. Our ambition is to improve health and reduce health inequalities, locally and globally, through excellent research and its translation into healthcare practice, and the education of future scientific and clinical leaders who will advocate and practise an evidence-based approach.
