The aim of this unit is to conduct a clinical epidemiology project and write a report on the project in the form of a paper suitable for publication. The project will involve: drafting and refining the project proposal; data collection; data analysis; and produce a report suitable for publication. This project unit is a capstone unit and student driven. It is the responsibility of the student to identify a suitable project, in consultation with a local clinical supervisor and the unit coordinator, based upon area of interest to the student and local capacity to provide support to the student. Feasibility is a critical criterion for selection of the topic given the tight time frame. Supervision is flexible but will include face to face meetings, email and telephone support. A minimum of five meetings are required and to be organised by the student, including one at the beginning and one at the end of semester (five meetings with local supervisor and Unit Coordinator combined).
