Developing Clinical Research and Publication Skills – a BMJ/Pfizer Partnership

Pfizer has partnered with the BMJ to help support improvements in clinical research and publication by providing free access to the BMJ’s Research to Publication e-learning module.  This initiative is supported by Pfizer’s Independent Grants for Learning & Change (IGLC) programme. The mission of the programme is to partner with the global healthcare community to improve patient outcomes in areas of mutual interest through support of measurable learning and change strategies.

Pfizer and the BMJ are now inviting applications from healthcare and education institutions to apply for access to the BMJ’s Research to Publication comprehensive six courses, 48 e-module programme. 

Research to Publication is an online programme of self-study courses to enable doctors and healthcare researchers to develop clinical research skills, write the best possible papers, and succeed in getting papers published.  For more information on what the programme entails and how your institution may benefit from access, visit

Pfizer and the BMJ invite academic and healthcare organisations with an interest in conducting clinical research, epidemiological/public health research and/or health services research to apply for access to the Research to Publication course with the purpose of improving the conduct of, and publication rate for, clinical research in the United Kingdom.  Please note that Research to Publication is not intended to support researchers improve basic science research skills.

Applications will be reviewed by a multidisciplinary panel comprised of independent experts in the fields of education and research and they will select the institutions to which access to Research to Publication is awarded based on pre-defined quality criteria.

The deadline for applications is 17.00pm on 30th April 2018 and following the expert panel’s review meeting, we anticipate notifying successful applicants no later than 30th June 2018.
