RESS is a core curriculum research strand which spans all five years of the MBChB programme. Students undertake a long in-depth project in Year 4 which continues through to Year 5. The projects aim to improve the quality of healthcare in any part of the service related to the clinical specialities. Projects may be linked to Year 4 electives, to include an international healthcare aspect with time spent abroad, or take shape as a research study, clinical audit or public health project.
“The RESS strand encourages a critical approach to evidence-based medicine, preparing graduates as the ‘Professionals and Practitioners’ of tomorrow”.
