An original research project will be conducted and a thesis of 12,000-15,000 words completed under academic supervision. Data collection: each student will be encouraged to develop and plan a project during Year 1. Topics may reflect their own interest or relate to current research at the clinical genetics service (Genetic Health Services Victoria) or the Murdoch Childrens Research Institute (MCRI) where the Masters will be taught. Students will be assigned a supervisor and start to collect data during their clinical placement or through other relevant sources eg the health care system.
This is supplemented by study in existing short courses and online resources (eg www.courseworks.unimelb.edu.au) offered through The University of Melbourne, as appropriate to required skills.
