The Research Placement course is a capstone experience designed to develop research skills in third-year BHlthMedSc students through a year-long research placement related to their major. Students will design a project, learn research methodology in performing the project, analyse, interpret and communicate the findings of a research project or internship placement under academic supervision in a Small Group Discovery Experience. Some research placements will require a GPA > 5.5. The research placement experience will be supported by workshop modules and journal club sessions. These will include: 1. Common modules on core competencies (eg research integrity, research ethics), 2. Major-specific modules including journal clubs to develop evaluation skills 3. A fixed number of skills modules selected according to skills required for the specific placement and the student's existing skills/courses already completed (e.g. systematic review principles, laboratory research design). 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.
