The Women and Children’s Health research in Liverpool has an international reputation for excellence. The Department of Women’s and Children’s Health incorporates obstetrics, gynaecology, neonatology and medical and surgical paediatrics. The Department offers some of the most extensive facilities for research in this area in Europe, providing excellent bases for patient-orientated translational and clinical research.

A doctoral degree is awarded to students that have demonstrated the ability to conceptualise, design, and implement a substantial research project that results in new knowledge, applications, or understanding in their field of study. During your research, you can expect to draw on direct clinical and observational experience to produce an original thesis of 80,000-100,000 words. You'll be part of a research group which matches your research interests.
