The Centre supports PhD students whose research addresses challenges in our key research areas of health service delivery, pharmaceutical/med-tech industry, and healthcare in emerging economies.
Our PhD students are enrolled on Cambridge Judge Business School's doctoral programme and trained for an academic career in a leading business school. They use the challenges of healthcare as the context for their research but, to be attractive to top business schools, they develop their research within a chosen academic field represented in a business school. Typical fields include organisational behaviour, strategy and innovation, information systems, management science and operations, and applied psychology.
PhD students are generally recruited from Cambridge Judge Business School's research MPhils, specifically the MPhil in Innovation, Strategy & Organisation and the MPhil in Management Science & Operations. Students with exceptional research-led masters-level qualifications from other leading universities may be considered for direct entry to the PhD programme.
The Centre will work with Cambridge Judge Business School and the University of Cambridge to offer a full funding package for the duration of the PhD.
