Research Degree Opportunities
The School of Health and Related Research (ScHARR) at the University of Sheffield houses the largest concentration of world leading and internationally excellent health services researchers in the UK (www.researchresearch.com).
Please see the ScHARR website for our range of disciplines and research interests including public health, epidemiology, health services research, health economic and decision science, medical statistics, social sciences and mental health.
ScHARR is one of the UK's top university departments for postgraduate research studies in the fields of health services research, health economics and public health. You may study for a research degree (PhD, MD or MPhil in Health and Related Research) on a topic in these areas.
