Oxford Masters programme in EBHC

The University of Oxford Centre for Continuing Professional Development's integrated postgraduate programme on evidence-based health care for professionals in the NHS has two more intakes in September and October 1997. Interviews will take place in February, so if you want to get on, get with it and send in an application.

The programme integrates core elements of evidence-based health care into a coherent basis of expertise and competence in using and establishing evidence of health care effectiveness and efficiency.

Aim of the programme

  • Understand the principles of evidence-based health care.
  • Identify, critically appraise and incorporate results of medical and social science research into day-to-day decision making.
  • Teach others how to find, appraise and implement evidence-based research.
  • Design, execute, analyse and interpret clinical trials, overviews and other forms of health care evaluation.
  • Undertake research in order to establish evidence where it is not available or is of uncertain quality.


The Masters Programme has a layered approach with three related courses - Certificate, Diploma, and MSc. Certificates lead to Diploma which lead to a Master of Science degree from the University of Oxford.

Who should do it?

Graduates (or people who have completed a professional training course), with at least five years professional work experience in health care. So the course should be ideal for many nurses, managers, scientists and doctors. The courses are taught in Oxford.
