The Nuffield Department of Population Health (NDPH) has a full-time three year DPhil programme to train new researchers in Population Health and also offers the opportunity to work closely with world-leading researchers.

The DPhil in Population Health is intended to provide students with training in research, to develop in-depth knowledge and understanding of their chosen population health research project, and to prepare them for a career in academia.  DPhil students come from many backgrounds including medical practice, epidemiology, statistics, health services research, public health, economics, and ethics.
