Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractpeer-review


Universities are increasingly offering post-graduate medical education though Doctorate of Medicine (MD) programs. To achieve Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) accreditation a MD program must provide students with specialised research skills including the ability to generate and disseminate findings that contribute to the discipline of medicine. In 2014 the Flinders University MD introduced Advanced Studies as a core subject requiring students to select course-work or research project activities equating to 135 hours per year during years 2, 3 and 4 of the four-year course.
