Specialist Certificate in Clinical Research (Neuroscience)

      What will I study?


      Course description

      The Specialist Certificate in Clinical Research (Neuroscience) is offered through two subjects, each delivered intensively over a week by a team with expertise across the breadth of clinical neuroscience research.

      Intended learning outcomes

      Graduates of the Specialist Certificate in Clinical Research (Neuroscience) should:

      • Have a high-level understanding of the major activities involved in planning clinical research methodologies applicable to problems in neurological disease
      • Have a sound knowledge of the overlap with basic science advances across the neuroscience field and a good understanding of clinical synergies
      • Have gained insights into the broad "hot topics" in neuroscience research and be able to generate useful discussions and ideas
      • Be able to analyse and critically appraise the clinical and basic neuroscience literature in a chosen topic of interest
      • Be able to apply this knowledge through creating new ideas for clinical research projects
      • Be able to work in teams and effectively communicate clinical research findings
      • Demonstrate a high level of understanding of various advanced clinical research techniques that have broad application to many areas of neuroscience
      • Understand clinical research applications of brain imaging techniques
      • Understand the need for multi-disciplinary integration in clinical research and be able to establish appropriate collaborations across disciplines
      • Have gained insights into current research applications of these techniques across the various neuroscience disciplines
      • Be able to develop innovative strategies to investigate clinical neuroscience research questions to pursue in response to particular neurological problems; and
      • Have achieved a level of competency enabling them to create and conduct high quality clinical neuroscience research projects from the original concept through to submission of competitive research proposals.
