Clinical Research Project (Masters Final)
With the guidance of a principal supervisor (and a secondary supervisor if required), students will conduct and report on the completion of an appropriate research project, normally developed as part of PSYC6511 (Research Project 1). As part of this course students will develop skills in evaluating existing research, implementing an empirical research methodology, collecting/locating appropriate data, analysing and interpreting data, and reporting findings in appropriate format. The mode of delivery is internal and teaching is by individual supervision. Students are advised to read the Clinical Program Research Manual for a description of the course requirements.
