Inside Evidence-Based Health Care

Book a place on one of our four virtual events, giving you the chance to discover what it’s like to study on Oxford University’s part-time postgraduate programme in Evidence-Based Health Care.


This diverse, internationally recognised programme aims to teach health professionals to base their clinical and health management decisions on valid, reliable and relevant evidence, determined by sound scientific research and evaluation.

The part-time courses blend intensive residential weeks in Oxford with home study, and enable students to interact directly with global experts and leaders in evidence-based practice and education.

Now, for the first time, we are inviting prospective students from across the globe to a webinar series with insights from global experts on the latest in EBM and its application.

Our sessions will include a live Twitter Q&A with the Course Directors after each talk to offer further insights into the programme, including:

  • the range of MSc, Diploma, Certificate and accredited short courses,
  • practical applications of the courses,
  • entry requirements.

 Follow us at #InsideEBHC

Attendees can join the sessions virtually or in person at the Sadler Room, Rewley House, 1 Wellington Square, Oxford, OX1 2JA.
