The department is multi-disciplinary and includes statisticians, epidemiologists, geneticists, sociologists, psychologists, anthropologists, health economists, public health physicians, medical ethicists, data scientists, neuroscientists, and various community-based physicians and nurses. The Population Health Sciences programme is offered by the University of Bristol .
We are keen to attract graduates from all these disciplines to carry out postgraduate research. In the 2018 Postgraduate Research Experience Survey, 87% of the schools students were satisfied with their postgraduate experience. Ratings for quality of supervision, resources, research skills training and professional development met or exceeded sector averages.
Most of our final-year research students express a wish to continue in research. The majority of recent PhD graduates now work in the academic sector, with others working in the health and private sectors. In addition to excellent research training, our students develop a range of transferable skills to ensure they have the best possible opportunities whatever their chosen career.
