MBBS 3rd Year Research Proposals and Critical Appraisals: Meeting with the MLC

The MLC will provide specific appointment times at the AHMS building to discuss research proposals/critical appraisals with MBBS 3rd Year students. (Appointments can also be made at the North Terrace Campus MLC.) Don't forget there are heaps of resources to help you make decisions about statistics on the statistics lectures page.

At these appointments, students will talk with a staff member about their research proposal/critical appraisal, and the staff member will give advice on the appropriate statistical methods, as well as answer general questions about statistics.
