Students commence an appropriately designed research project in an area of interest, under the supervision of a UWA Rural Clinical School academic staff member. In addition to commencing their research project, students prepare a literature review and a written research proposal where they place their study in the context of the available literature, formulate one or more hypotheses or research questions based on gaps in the available knowledge, design an appropriate research study to test their hypotheses or answer their research questions, and outline their study design, research methods and data analysis plan.
The project can be one of either clinical audit, systematic review, or independent research. The first assessment will be a wriitten assigment which may include a formal research proposal (including literature review) and/or submission to Human Research Ethics Committee, GEKO, or PROSPERO.
Students planning on undertaking research Masters or PhD programs in the future are advised to undertake independent research.
