The NIHR Oxford Health Biomedical Research Centre are delighted to be launching the first Oxford Short Course in Experimental Medicine for Mental Health (OxCEMM), designed for those with a basic understanding of experimental medicine who would like to develop a more comprehensive and practical grounding in research in this area.
Aimed at a range of interested parties, the course is unique in offering multi-disciplinary training in experimental medicine research, and will appeal to pharmacists, basic scientists, allied health professionals and others looking to develop research. Medical doctors at any career stage – from trainees, senior medical students to consultants – are welcome. The course is particularly aimed at psychiatrists, but will also be of interest to neurologists, GPs and other specialists.
Covering what you need to know to develop and conduct experimental medicine studies in mental health, the programme addresses study design, regulation, conduct and analysis, experimental medicine approaches, industrial considerations, emerging themes and personal skills development.
With involvement from NIHR Oxford Health BRC researchers, and with input from the Patients and Research Group, the programme will be taught through a mixture of presentations, discussions, group exercises and research facility tours.

Places on the course are limited. Bursaries and accommodation available.
