Career development 1 John Cairns

The Radcliffe Department of Medicine provides graduate students with exceptional teaching, training and career development in a broad spectrum of sciences related to medicine. With around 150 graduate students currently in the Department, most of whom are studying for a four year DPhil, the Department is committed to training the next generation of researchers in biological and clinical sciences.

The pages in this section will provide guidance on a range of important areas for graduate students and supervisors. Students should also consult the Graduate Student Handbook for information and new students may find the First Term Checklist useful. Students should complete the editable version of the training forms at the back of the handbook on an on-going basis.


Our handbook contains all you need to know about completing your DPhil in RDM.

Congratulations to our RDM Graduate Prize Winners!
