Research in Medical Radiation Sciences (MRTY3099)


This unit introduces the students to the role of research within the medical radiation sciences. Students will learn how to access, interpret and critically assess published research. Skills in these areas will be developed by written critique of a published research article, and writing a literature review on a selected research topic. Students will also learn about the principles of ethical human research and apply them in the preparation of an application for human research ethics approval. Some work is undertaken in groups to foster a team approach to research
