The general format of the research project is a manuscript including a detailed literature review and an outline of the aim of the project. Sections include a description of the methodology, results, discussion and conclusion. The dissertation is to be written in a format suitable for submission to an appropriate podiatric medical journal for consideration for publication in order to disseminate the research work to the profession.
Students are able to (1) identify a problem and/or research area from their own interest or professional work in podiatry and (2) produce a dissertation/manuscript of a standard suitable for publication in a recognised peer-reviewed podiatric or medical journal.
Indicative assessments in this unit are as follows: (1) oral presentation; (2) written research proposal; and (3) research dissertation/manuscript. Further information is available in the unit outline.

Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit.
