The Master of Clinical Investigation (MCI) is a new programme which commenced in August 2008. The programme, which is completed in 2 years, aims to equip clinicians with basic methodological and practical skills to design and conduct clinical investigations that are relevant to patient care. The MCI programme will also provide a good foundation for those aiming to pursue advanced clinical research training, including training programmes leading to a PhD degree.

Degree Requirements

  • An MBBS or equivalent degree from a recognised university
  • Candidates have entered specialist training or residency programme
  • At least two years of post-registration clinical experience

Curriculum Structure

The MCI programme caters only for part-time students with a candidature period of two years, open to extension to a maximum of three years if more time is required for the research component. The 40-modular credit (MC) programme structure comprises 8 modules (32 MCs) for coursework (80%) and a research component (20%) of 8 MCs.  For the research component, students work under the supervision of a group of mentors (established clinical investigators/researchers).
