OverviewThe part-time DPhil Programme considers applications from those who have already been awarded the MSc in Evidence-Based Health Care. Applications may also be considered from students with a Master's in a related subject. Supervision is arranged to suit the DPhil topic and may involve staff from within the Medical Sciences Division as well as co-supervision with members of the Evidence-Based network.
There are three admission deadlines for applicants who wish to be considered for entry in October 2014. These are 22 November 2013, 24 January 2014 and 14 March 2014.
DescriptionThe part-time DPhil programme follows on from the taught MSc course in Evidence-Based Health Care (EBHC) and is overseen by the University's Continuing Education Board. Admission is through the Department for Continuing Education. All graduate students must apply also for membership of a college. Most choose to become members of Kellogg College, which caters particularly for part-time mature students and which is closely associated with the Department. Supervision is arranged to suit the DPhil topic and may involve staff from within the Medical Sciences Division as well as co-supervision with members of the Evidence-Based network.
The part-time DPhil is part of the Evidence-Based Health Care Programme, which is jointly run with the Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine in the Department of Primary Health Care Sciences. The programme also works closely with the Centres of Evidence-Based Nursing, Evidence-Based Mental Health, and Evidence-Based Dentistry. The Department's graduate students have access to the full range of Oxford's library and computing facilities.
The part-time DPhil regulations normally require a minimum of six years' part-time study (equivalent to three years' full-time) up to a maximum of eight years part-time study. Research students may be required to undertake appropriate research training provided within the Department. In addition, they will be strongly encouraged to participate in seminars and informal meetings with staff and other researchers. The major commitment of time will be to individual study and research.
