Programme directors and supervisors

The Sheffield Centre for Health and Related Research is renowned for the quality of its research and staff, and Wellcome Doctoral Training Centre students have access to a pool of more than 70 supervisors to support them through their PhDs. 

Supervisors have expertise in public health policy appraisal, health economics, cost-effectiveness modelling, health services research, trial design, evaluation of complex interventions and valuation of health and wellbeing.

Students engage with potential supervisors during Year One, before working with programme directors to decide the most suitable supervisory panel for Years Two to Four.
