in various clinical health care settings. Students enrolled in this subject will undertake
an additional research task that comprises a detailed exploration of a selected clinical
issue, based on patients encountered during the clinical rotations within the academic
year. Students will be required to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of how
basic medical and social sciences impact on clinical medical care and to identify
potential research questions.
