This study aimed to evaluate the process and impact of embedding Public and Patient Involvement (PPI) training in a structured PhD programme. Designed as a longitudinal study, it involved a process evaluation to provide an understanding of how PPI was embedded and explored the experiences of key stakeholders. An impact evaluation assessed the impact of embedding PPI training in the programme. Participants included PhD scholars, PPI contributors and PhD supervisors. The evaluation identified lessons that can inform future doctoral programmes seeking to implement this novel approach and embed formal and experiential PPI training.
