This route is for practitioners who already have research experience (conducted either alone or collaboratively) and have published academic publications, papers or journal articles.
For this route, you’ll usually produce a thesis of eight to 12 thematically linked publications. A supervisory team will support you during your PhD as you add further publications to your existing body of published work.
You’ll submit a critical commentary of 10,000 – 15,000 words and your work will be examined. You’ll be questioned on aspects of this work and you’ll have the opportunity to respond constructively in a viva voce exam.
Past and current examples of PhD by publication undertaken by medics include: dementia and cancer care; emergency medical education and the interface with social media; advances in multidisciplinary tracheostomy care and their impact on the safety and quality of care in the critically ill.
