The Joanna Briggs Institute
Welcome to the Joanna Briggs Institute – Higher Degrees by Research Program (JBI-HDRP).
The Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI) is a world-class research organisation within the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, the University of Adelaide. The teaching and research programs offered through the Institute are underpinned by methodologies and methods that are recognised internationally. We have links to over 75 other centres, 7000 health care providers, 150 universities and research groups that apply and publish JBI methods. Our Master of Clinical Science and Doctor of Philosophy are popular with busy health professionals and interstate students and, under the Research Training Scheme (RTS), there are no fees attached for Australian and New Zealand citizens and residents. These degrees are designed to suit busy clinicians and health care professionals who are seeking to grow or establish their careers.
Our multi-disciplinary approach accepts students from across all health professions who have an interest in research relating to synthesis, transfer or implementation of best practice. We challenge our research students to deliver acquired knowledge to those who need it most. Our focus is on practical clinical outcomes and support for student-led publications, ensuring a relevant and impactful opportunity for each student within their chosen field of practice.
