The Medical Sciences MRes is designed to provide a grounding in medical research skills if you are a student from the medical and dental sciences. The course is taken after Year 4 of clinical training, with candidates selected from students admitted to the MBChB undergraduate courses at Manchester and the University of St Andrews. It is also open to medical students from other universities in the UK, as well as medical and dental graduates with medical research experience. The purpose of the MRes is to provide a master's level programme that will equip students from the medical and dental sciences with the skills and knowledge they need to pursue a research based career in academic medicine. It focuses on medical research rather than biological science research. The course has both taught and research components. Laboratory experience is gained through taught units, and many students gain additional laboratory experience within their research placement. Taught units include a research skills unit, tutorials focusing on critical appraisal and research publications, practical skills in biomedicine and a clinical masterclass unit which focuses on clinical research skills such as study design, ethics and academic career pathways.
