Course Summary

This course gives you the opportunity to conduct a substantial independent research project which will lead to an original contribution to knowledge. You can work in a wide range of areas – our current students are researching topics as diverse as treatment of lower limb varicose veins, HIV microbicides, and outcomes of bariatric surgery. Throughout your degree, you will be supervised by a leading expert in the field and supported by a Thesis Advisory Panel. An MD project addresses issues of diagnosis or management in a clinical environment.

The MD can be studied full-time or part-time. Many MD students have existing clinical commitments alongside their studies. The full-time MD is suitable if you can devote a significant amount of study time per week (at least 35 hours) alongside your clinical work. If your clinical work is demanding or you have limited study time, you should consider studying part-time. If you have full-time clinical commitments, you must study part-time. Part-time study is at least 17.5 hours per week. This degree is awarded by both the University of Hull and University of York.
