Global Health Capstone - GLOH5301

Year - 2020

The capstone unit is to be completed in the last semester of the candidature. This unit provides students with an opportunity to draw together and integrate their learning in the cores and elective units and apply the knowledge and skills gained. Students will be expected to complete a task which illustrates how a global health problem or issue can be analyzed and an appropriate response formulated (including action to be taken and a plan to evaluate the impact of the action). This work may be completed individually or in small groups. For example students may design a simple study or intervention evaluation or a practical project incorporating quantitative and qualitative methodologies to address a global health problem in a specific global setting. Students who have already collected data can analyze the data and write up as the capstone. Assessment will be a final product (e. g. a report, a literature review, an application or multimedia) or a manuscript, which is to the standard of publication.
