The National Institute for Health Research Clinical Research Network (NIHR CRN) Coordinating Centre runs two MOOCs (free online courses) on Futurelearn.

The first course is ‘What is health research?’. It is a basic introduction to what health research is and covers different topics that anyone new to research may find interesting and informative.

The second course is ‘Improving Healthcare Through Clinical Research’. This course goes into more details about Clinical Research and the process of discovery.

Each course has a Lead Educator who is supported by a number of different Mentors.

You can join either of the MOOCs at any time or you can sign up and wait a couple of months to participate in the mentor supported discussions.
