The studentship is tenable for three years full time (subject to satisfactory progress). Both home/EU and international applicants may apply. The studentship will provide an annual stipend of £15,285 (subject to satisfactory progress) in addition to course fees.  It is expected that the successful applicant will commence on Wednesday 1 September 2021.

The project title is: Can global consensus be arrived at as to the essential components of training for ensuring confident and effective medical practice in remote settings?

The given description is:  An initial review of all global programs which seek to train remote medical practitioners. The initial review will inform the first stage of a Delphi process calling on the expertise of leaders in this area from around the world, in the aim of arriving at a draft consensus position for the essential features for training for those practising in remote locations anywhere in the world.
