Your required textbook for the course: Research Methodology and Graduation Project
This course introduces students to different issues relating to medical science methodology and fieldwork methods in medical laboratory research. Students will explore methodological questions concerning quantitative and qualitative research designs. Part of the course involves an evaluation of basic assumptions underpinning research in medical laboratory sciences, particularly in the area of diagnosis and control of diseases and the identification, isolation and characterization of pathogens, analytes, drugs, etc. This entails a critical evaluation of research methodology used in medical laboratory research. The aim of the course is to equip students with the skill to evaluate and conduct their own research.
At the end of the course, the student should be able to:
1) Know what is research and understand why it is important.
2) Know why is it important to write you research up and the required elements in a formal report.
3) Describe the ethical considerations throughout the research process.
4) List types of research designs and the requirements for each type (hypothesis, study sample and size, measurement methods and controls, questionnaires, etc.
5) Define research protocol and describe a format to write a research protocol (materials and methods).
6) Define a research proposal and list the components of a research proposal.
7) Implement a research project, describe and analyse research results, interpret research results, and communicate research via a written report and a presentation.
