About

Three years of supervised laboratory-based research (five years part-time) examined by thesis and viva voce. Surgery PhD students from University of Cambridge, are typically science postgraduates, medical students combining clinical training with the PhD, or clinically qualified doctors undertaking scientific training.

Overview

Research is in the areas of clinical transplantation, organ preservation, transplant immunology, orthopaedic research, regenerative medicine, urology and vascular research and covers basic biology through to clinical therapies. 

Specific research training relevant to your own project is provided in the laboratory in which you work. 

Candidates  of the Surgery PhD from University of Cambridge, wishing to take a shorter course of research may apply for the MPhil in Medical Sciences, which is also examined by thesis and viva voce.

Continuing

Those who wish to progress to a PhD after completing an MPhil will be required to satisfy their potential supervisor, Head of Department and the Faculty Degree Committee that they have the skills and ability to achieve a higher degree and have funding in place.
