Research Proposal Development
Having completed the research proposal development in the previous semester, the student is now exposed to either laboratory-based, clinic-based, community-based, or industrial-based research under the supervision of a research supervisor. Some lectures and tutorial sessions are included to introduce the student to various types of research designs and methods, and the tools available for data analysis.
As a scientist and lifelong learner, a pharmacist is expected to be competent in scientific research. This course helps to develop the skillset required to perform high quality independent scientific study in a relevant pharmaceutical field.
EXPECTED LEARNING OUTCOMES
The student is expected to:
1. Describe the importance of research in pharmacy
2. Describe the process of developing a research proposal
3. Compare and contract different scientific research methods
4. Prepare and plan to execute research project
5. Develop a fully developed research proposal
6. Present the main aspects of the proposal to a panel of examiners
