About this Unit
This Unit provides Honours level students with an Embedded Honours program which affords them the opportunity to undertake research on a specialist topic within their undergraduate program - 4641, Bachelor of Medicine / Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS). The program runs over Years 4 & 5 of the MBBS and this Unit is undertaken in Year 5, in conjunction with Integrated Clinical Rotations 3 (Unit 400977) and Integrated Clinical Rotations 4 (Unit 400978). The Honours Research Project 2 consists of approximately 100 hours work. The main objectives are to give students a heightened awareness and knowledge of the principles and methodology of medical research and an enhanced ability to critically evaluate scientific literature. The research component will be assessed by an Honours dissertation to be submitted in September during Session 2H. The award of MBBS Honours will require satisfactory completion of this Unit plus Honours Research Project 1 (Unit 400959) and the appropriate dissertation grade and GPA across the MBBS course.
