Faculty of Law

The Centre for Law, Medicine and Life Sciences and The Healthcare Improvement Studies Institute (in the School of Clinical Medicine) seek to appoint a Research Associate or Senior Research Associate to work on a project exploring the intersection between the law of negligence and the practice of medical diagnosis.

The project will investigate and critically evaluate the scope of a physician's legal duties to record and communicate the uncertainty that is inherent in the process of developing a patient's 'differential diagnosis'. The aim of the project is not only to clarify how the law shapes the development and communication of differential diagnoses, but also assess whether and how the law in this area should be reformed.
