PhD/DPhil - Doctor of Philosophy
Artificial Intelligence (Ai) Health Studies
The CDT programme consists of a 1 year MRes followed by a 3 year PhD. Throughout this period the CDT will continue to closely monitor the need for continuing training and support, tailored to each student, and provide ongoing training in Research Skills. The MRes programme covers the core competencies of artificial intelligence and has a central emphasis on how healthcare organisations work. As part of the MRes, you will complete a substantial Masters-level project of your choice, working with a supervisory team that will normally include a clinician and an academic. Projects will be embedded within the NHS setting, with trainees undertaking an immersive clinical experience through our mini-MD programme. The remaining years will be more like a traditional PhD, which leads to the presentation of a PhD thesis at the end of the fourth year. During your PhD you will remain involved in CDT activities and will continue to work closely with relevant health professionals and clinical teams through our NHS partners and leading academics at UCL.
Careers The distinctive characteristics of our programme allow us to produce graduates who are prepared to: engineer adaptive and responsive solutions that use AI to deal with complexity; innovate across all levels of care, from community services to specialist hospital; be comfortable working with patients and professionals, and responding to their input; appreciate the importance of addressing health needs rather than creating new demand.
The CDT is a new programme. Previous students from our experienced CDT supervisors have tackled projects in AI and healthcare and gone on to successful careers in academia and industry.
