Candidates may contract to undertake independent studies or research in a particular field of interest in paediatrics. Students undertaking a research project will be required to nominate an appropriate supervisor relevant to their field of research. The project is negotiated with your supervisor and based on a written Learning Contract which you will provide to the unit coordinator. Your supervisor will help you select a topic and define the research questions. You are encouraged to select a project that is directly relevant to your own work setting. As part of the Independent Study you will develop your own learning outcomes. The project can be undertaken in either Semester One or Two (6 credit points). You will produce a scholarly piece of work that is suitable for submission to a peer-reviewed journal.
