Graduate Studies in the Nuffield Department of Medicine
The Nuffield Department of Medicine (NDM) is one of the largest and most highly regarded departments of medicine in Europe and noted for the wide range and excellence of its basic and clinical research (rated 5* in research assessment exercises).
The NDM is just as renowned for its work in basic sciences as more clinical or applied work. Much of the £130 million per annum grant income is spent on understanding the most basic principles of biology and disease pathogenesis.
As well as its research and clinical commitments in Oxford, the department has programmes in Thailand, Vietnam and Kenya. In addition to the MSc course, the NDM admits about 60 graduate (postgraduate) students each year for study and research towards a Doctor of Philosophy (DPhil) degree, which is the University of Oxford's equivalent of a PhD.
