Workshop in synthesising qualitative research

The Scottish Graduate School of Social Science Health Pathway is holding this Workshop on the 11th and 12th of May 2015 at the University of Edinburgh. This Workshop will be run by Dr Ruth Jepson from the Scottish Collaboration for Public Health Research and Policy, for PhD and doctorate students. As it received excellent student feedback last year, Ruth has agreed to run this Workshop once again this year. This two day Workshop is also a great opportunity for students to network, meet with other PhD students like themselves in a national context and get some peer support. Travel is reimbursed for students outside of Edinburgh. A short video from last year’s training can be viewed at the following link: http://www.socsciscotland.ac.uk/events/advanced_training
