As part of the Undergraduate Medical Education (UGME) curriculum at Memorial University, each medical student is required to complete a research project that is broken down into four phases over two years with the goal of introducing medical students to the research process.

Phase 1: Research Question and Lit Review

Phase 2: Proposal and Ethics Application

Phase 3: Data Collection and Analysis

Phase 4: Knowledge Translation

In addition to classroom sessions, students will incrementally build their research skills through the completion of specific deliverables for each of the four phases (ie. Poster Presentation, Oral Presentation).

Students in the Research Apprenticeship Program will receive mentorship in each phase. Quality of Care NL/Choosing Wisely NL will provide expertise in Clinical Epidemiology, Biostatistics, Ethics, and Knowledge Translation that will assist in completing the research project.
