Professional development

Short courses in health sciences

Providing professionals with access to Oxford’s internationally recognised excellence in biomedical and clinical research and teaching.

For health-care professionals and people working within medical research, including clinicians, researchers, scientists, administrators and educators within health care, research organisations, pharmaceuticals, academia, and regulatory and government bodies.

Taught by leading researchers and renowned guest presenters, our short courses are specially designed for busy health professionals seeking essential updating. Through world-class teaching and innovative study methods, participants are given insights into the very latest advances in knowledge, skills and techniques. Many short courses form part of a master’s- level programme, and participants may be eligible to take these for academic credit (gaining Credit Accumulation and Transfer Scheme (CATS) points); those interested in applying for an Oxford qualification may consider enrolling on a suitable ‘taster’ short course.
