As part of the Cancer Research UK Clinical Academic Training Programme, the intercalated PhD (iPhD) Pathway is funded between Imperial College London and The Institute of Cancer Research, London.


This iPhD will train clinical academics to work on multidisciplinary projects that bring together cancer research and the engineering and physical sciences. It is intended for outstanding undergraduate students on the MBBS/BSc degree course and offers the opportunity to include an intercalated PhD as part the course. The PhD consists of 3 years research to be undertaken after the successful completion of the intercalated BSc (iBSc) in year 4 of the MBBS degree. Trainees will re-enter undergraduate medical education at year 5 after the completion of the PhD training.
