Semester 1UWA (Perth)Face to face
This unit requires students to implement the research project proposed in the research project proposal unit (PATH5113) and carry out, evaluate and present a discrete body of applied research relevant to pathology. Techniques and knowledge acquired laboratory practical sessions in prior postgraduate study will 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 laboratory skills acquired in pervious units; (3) analyse and critically evaluate research data; (4) understand the role of applied research in pathology laboratories; and (5) demonstrate good oral and written communication skills.
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.
