This new course ran for the first time in January 2019, with an engaging and thought-provoking programme of talks, tours of facilities and group discussions. Feedback from participants was uniformly excellent. Applications for the January 2020 course opened on 15th August 2019.

The Oxford Short Course in Experimental Medicine for Mental Health (OxCEMM) provides a practical and comprehensive grounding in experimental medicine for mental health. It is aimed at those with a basic understanding, either at early stages in research, or planning to be actively involved in the future.

Are you aware of experimental medicine as an approach, but unsure how to begin your own study? Or are you supporting colleagues working on experimental medicine research projects, but unsure about the bigger picture?

The OxCEMM course is open to clinical and pre-clinical staff and trainees, and medical doctors at any career stage. It will be of interest to psychiatrists, neurologists, GPs and other specialists, nurses, basic scientists, allied health professionals and pharmacists.

OxCEMM 2020 promises to be an excellent opportunity to learn and improve skills and understanding of experimental medicine for mental health. Participants in the last course were engaged and enthusiastic. Even those who were already running experimental medicine studies said how much they had learnt and how useful it was to have all the practical information they need in a single place. - Associate Professor, Liz Tunbridge, NIHR Oxford Health Training Lead

There are limited places and bursaries available. Bursaries will cover the costs of the course, accommodation, evening/daytime meals, as well as, refreshments and they will be awarded by the NIHR Oxford Health Biomedical Research Centre.

Immensely useful. Thank you so much for organising an intellectually stimulating course filled with inspirational content and pragmatic advice. - OxCEMM 2019 participant
