Lead academic: Dr Jennifer Walsh MBChB PhD FRCP FHEA
This unique one-year programme is run by the Centre for Integrated research into Musculoskeletal Ageing (CIMA) and funded by Medical Research Council and Arthritis Research UK. CIMA is a collaboration between the University of Sheffield, the University of Liverpool and the University of Newcastle.
The course provides multidisciplinary research training on the musculoskeletal system as a whole in the context of ageing. The training has a strong focus on employability. Topics range from basic science to clinical aspects, from in vitro to in vivo models, and from the latest advances in the assessment of the musculoskeletal system to lifestyle interventions.
Although you'll be based at Sheffield, the course involves exchange visits to the other universities.
We accept medical students who wish to intercalate their studies. Find out more on the Medical School's website.
