Research Project (CLTR5008)


The capstone unit is a project which requires each student to bring together concepts, principles and applications developed in the previous units of coursework study into a workable research proposal and plan for the initiation and management of a clinical trial. The capstone will test the student's ability to integrate and consolidate their learning.
