SURGERY 7057AHO - Surgical Science Research & Development I Part A

Teaching Hospitals - Semester 1 - 2016

The course information on this page is being finalised for 2016. Please check again before classes commence.

This course encourages students to carry out their own research into relevant topics in surgery. Students will carry out literature reviews before designing a research protocol for a given research project. The research project will be supervised by senior surgical clinicians. Students will learn how to appraise relevant scientific literature and to summarise critically review findings based on logical argument and evidence based information. They will then be required to present this review at one of the monthly Journal Club meetings. There will be tutorials but the emphasis will be on independent study where students will be expected to work autonomously but with the provision of regular supervision from their project mentor. The tutorials will augment the research component to be completed by the students by providing coursework on topics that will be able to be applied practically to the research project and article review and presentation.
