PATH5115 Research Project Part 1
- 6 points
|Semester 1||UWA (Perth)||Multi-mode|
- This unit requires students to implement the supervised research project proposed in co-requisite unit PATH5113 - Research Project Proposal and carry out, evaluate and present a discrete body of applied research relevant to clinical pathology. Techniques and knowledge acquired in prior laboratory practical sessions enable students to carry out a research project that is implemented within a clinical and/or research laboratory setting. The unit includes the execution, and written and oral reporting of the research undertaken by the students to reinforce the scientific basis of medicine.
- Students are able to (1) demonstrate the ability to implement a research plan; (2) apply clinical laboratory skills acquired in previous units; (3) analyse and critically evaluate research data; (4) understand the role of applied research in clinical laboratories; (5) demonstrate good oral and written communication skills; and (6) demonstrate an understanding of how research ethics informs practical research work.
- Indicative assessments in this unit are as follows: (1) laboratory book; (2) seminar; and (3) dissertation. Further information is available in the unit outline.
Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit.
