The RCC is pleased to announce up to £27k of matched-funding (up to £4.5k per year for up to 6 years, matched by the institution or other grant-making body) towards a new, part-time PhD studentship to be undertaken in a UK institution between 2022 and 2028.

Applications are now invited from UK Higher Education Institutions for this studentship, which is expected to commence in 2022.

  • Chiropractic patient safety
