    Course description

    The course is an adaptation of, and builds on, two previous courses: the Masters in Population Health Evidence (MPHe) and the MRes (Health and Community). It is a web-based course, and is partnered by a separate course, the Masters of Public Health (MPH) which has a much smaller research component. There are two streams to the MRes, one called Public Health and the other Primary Care. Distinction between the two is on the basis of the Course Units taken and the research topics chosen.

    The aim of the course is to provide an entrance to research development, mainly for those currently in the workforce who wish to become researchers, through a combination of coursework and research training.

    The objectives are to provide a combination of coursework and research work to develop research skills in Public Health and Primary Care. The flexibility provided by offering the coursework components on-line, allows those currently in the workforce to use this as a way of entering research training.
