Research Project - History of Medicine

Credits: Design (10 credits) and Write-Up (50 credits)

Assessment: 1 x oral presentation of research proposal (50%) and 1 x poster presentation (50%)

By the end of the First Semester, you will have developed an area of research and prepared a Research Proposal. This could be on any number of themes, possibly linked to an existing project or may even be multidisciplinary, taking on board other elements from the core modules. For those doing so, a more extensive bibliography of historical methodology and another designed to meet your specific research requirements will be distributed.

The sole teaching modules in the Second Semester relate to the research project. Opportunities will exist from late February for you to travel in order to examine new sources – this might involve visiting libraries, museums, and hospitals, or undertaking interviews. This travel might well be abroad.
