The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Medical Imaging at King's College London and Imperial College London brings together two world-leading, research-focused universities in a unique collaboration to create an interdisciplinary training approach specifically designed to meet challenges in healthcare and medical imaging. With complementary strengths in basic sciences, engineering and clinical translation, the CDT has strong links with key industrial partners and close strategic and geographical links with St Thomas' Hospital, a top-rated teaching hospital where the centre is based. The CDT is training and nurturing the next generation of imaging scientists, research and industry leaders.
As of August, we have 3 extra studentships available for October 2017 entry which are open to UK/EU and international students.
We offer a 4-year doctoral training programme, with the first year embedded in our MRes Medical Imaging Sciences, followed by a 3-year PhD which is complemented by a bespoke training programme in transferable skills, innovation and entrepreneurship.
