Structured PhD

Many RCSI postgraduates are enrolled on four-year structured PhD programmes. RCSI offers a range of structured programmes including the two HRB-funded scholar programmes.

These structured programmes include generic training components and an individual PhD thesis project and represent the ideal PhD training opportunity of structured and supported training in a multidisciplinary environment alongside other PhD candidates.
