Clinical Epidemiology Project 1 - CEPI5505

Year - 2018

This unit provides students with an opportunity to develop a Clinical Epidemiology study proposal under supervision. The proposal will include: background to the project; project plan; project significance; justification of the project; project method; budget; and ethical implication of project. At the end of the unit, the student will be proficient in writing research proposals suitable for submission to an appropriate funding body. This project unit is a capstone unit and student driven. It is the responsibility of the student to identify a suitable project, in consultation with a local clinical supervisor and the unit coordinator, based upon area of interest to the student and local capacity to provide support to the student. Supervision is flexible but will include face to face meetings, email and telephone support. A minimum of two meetings/workshops are required, coinciding with the development of the project and a near-final proposal, one at the beginning and one at the end of semester.
