The award of the University's first ever DPhil in Evidence-Based Health Care went to Steven Edwards in 2010.
A richly deserved new milestone in his career, and a credit to those who established this novel programme. The part-time research programme in evidence based health care was ideally suited to someone like Steven. He was able to combine successfully a full-time job with the work for his DPhil, and produced a thesis of high quality, including systematic reviews and an economic model of the effects of antibiotics in the intensive care setting. I am delighted to be part of a DPhil programme which gives students the flexibility to pursue substantial research projects in evidence based health care on a part-time basis.
