Year of entry: 2020

Career opportunities

Dr Lynne Warrander - MRes Reproduction and Pregnancy

The MRes opened my eyes to the possibilities of combining a career in clinical medicine with academic research.

I'm now a trainee in obstetrics and gynaecology, but have paused my training to undertake a PhD. I'm planning to continue my career as an academic obstetrician in the future.

Dr Lynne Warrander / Clinical Research Fellow, Tommy's Manchester Research Centre

Our MRes graduates have continued their scientific or medical careers in the following areas.

  • PhD research - 70% of home science graduates and 40% of our international graduates go on to conduct further research.
  • Clinical training - Through the O&G and Academic pathways (Academic Foundation and Academic Clinical Fellows (ACF)).
  • Other clinical/science professions - eg MBChB, midwifery, journal publishing, biotechnology, NHS STP and HIV Clinical Mentor.

Many of our students have stayed in the Maternal and Fetal Health Research Centre to undertake further research training.

We keep in contact with our MRes alumni and invite all past students to our annual welcome event for the new intake each October.
