Research Project in Psychiatry - BMRI5055

Year - 2018

This practically- based elective unit of study aims to provide a capstone experience for those psychiatry trainees wishing to gain experience in empirical research (quantitative or qualitative) relevant to the field of Psychiatry. This unit is to be taken over 1 semester or may be extended over 2 semesters with 3.5 hours per week field placement expected per semester over 2 semesters, or 7 hours per week over 1 semester. Students will learn a variety of skills for acquisition, analysis and presentation of data particular to their field of interest and will write up their project as a draft research publication. Potential projects can be reviewed by students in the semester prior to commencement so that they can familiarize themselves with research conducted at the Brain and Mind Centre, including placements in clinical research groups and basic neuroscience laboratories, depending on student skills and supervisor availability. Alternatively students may consult their local training networks and propose a supervised project well prior to the commencement of the unit. Projects may contribute to the Scholarly Project for the RANZCP CBFP. Acceptance to a given project will be selective, requiring departmental approval.
