HEALTH 3000A - Research Placement for Health Sciences

North Terrace Campus - Semester 2 - 2016

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

This course is designed to expose third-year BHlthSc (Adv) students to the university medical research environment and provide an opportunity to participate in the process of scientific research. The primary component of this course is the research placement, in which students are associated with an active research group in the Faculty, facilitating opportunity to gain hands-on medical research experience. The course will contribute to the student?s major in one of the three designated majors for the B.Hlth.Sc (Adv) (in Epidemiology, Nutrition or Reproductive Health) and therefore the research project will be in one of these areas. The research placement experience will be supported by tutorials and a ?journal club? focusing on development of core research skills and knowledge and critical appraisal of research outputs. The tutorials will also explore research integrity and the ethical issues associated with medical research. The course builds on HEALTH 2000 - Experimental Research in Health Sciences (Adv) II. Each student will document their research activities with a final written report, and in addition will communicate their research findings at an end-of-year symposium.
