St Andrew's School of Medicine provides post graduate students with a variety of opportunities for scientific training.
Since 2005, the School of Medicine has graduated MPhil, MD and PhD students in an expanding number of scientific subjects, including Community Health Sciences, Health Psychology and Molecular Medicine. In addition, since 2010, a new, one-year MRes in Medicine has expanded the choices available for postgraduate research, while the BPS-accredited, one-year taught MSc in Health Psychology provides postgraduate training for health psychology professionals.
Many principal investigators or group leaders of the work undertaken at St Andrews School of Medicine collaborate closely with other Schools and Universities, providing post graduate students at the School with a wealth of opportunities for interdisciplinary research.
At St Andrews, post gradaute students are able to take advantage of generic skills training provided by the University, as well as participate in the annual Research Symposium organised by the School of Medicine.
Entry into a Doctorate in Medicine degree at St Andrews School of Medicine is open to former medical graduates of St Andrews or suitably qualified current staff.
