SDDM5214: Research 3

During the second year, students will commence engaging in hands-on research. Students will continue to apply skills gained in DMD1 in identifying different study types, critically appraising clinical research literature and assigning levels of evidence to published research. The key concepts in research ethics and research data management will be introduced during this semester. This unit of study will help the students to further develop their skills in academic writing, accessing, organising and using information for ongoing learning.
