MD Project Development 2 (MDMP5225)


By the end of the course, students will be expected to have completed a comprehensive proposal for their MD Project. At the start of the course, students will be asked to outline their previous research experience (if any). On the basis of this, they will be triaged to learn about a range of research methods used in medicine, with particular emphasis on the type of investigation that they choose for their MD Project. They will also gain an understanding of the principles of health and medical research ethics.
