Welcome from Juliet Goldbart

As the incoming Director of Manchester Metropolitan University┬┤s Research Institute for Health and Social Change, I am delighted to introduce our research in the Faculty of Health, Psychology and Social Care.

The Research Institute for Health and Social Change (RIHSC) is a cross-disciplinary institute that brings together internationally recognised, innovative research in Health and Social Change, embracing the disciplines of Psychology, Physiotherapy, Nursing, Speech and Language Pathology, Social Work, and Social Care. In REF 2014, we have made high quality submissions to UoA22 (Social Work and Social Policy) and UoA3 (Allied Health Professions, Dentistry, Nursing and Pharmacy).

Strongly established and widely published in the field, RIHSC and our faculty partner, the Centre for Innovation & Knowledge Exchange, bring together an impressive array of research and knowledge exchange activity within MMU and across our extensive regional, national and international networks. We reflect the demands placed on policy makers, employers and public services in the 21st century, through our integrated approach both to research and to the issues affecting individuals, communities and populations.

We offer postgraduate supervision at Masters and Doctoral level. We currently have over 80 doctoral students, including full and part time students from the UK and a wide range of other countries. Find out more about postgraduate research at MMU.

We welcome opportunities for collaborative research and applications from prospective postgraduate research students. Contact us for more information.

I hope you will enjoy reading about some of the work in RISHC and the faculty of Health, Psychology & Social Care.
