40 Credits SPRING

Aims/Description: Website Version:This project for dual medical physics students provides a vehicle for deeper study of a topic of particular interest. The student will work alone or in a small team under academic and/or clinical supervision (students are encouraged to be pro-active in the specification of these projects within the areas of interest of the academic staff). The work of the project will give the students experience and practical laboratory/computer skills in a real research/clinical environment. They will develop hypotheses and ideas linked with a specified research project and undertake in depth experiments and analyses to test the hypothesis, with in depth knowledge of the specific research literature. Insight will be gained into the critical factors involved in developing timelines for research, reading, critical evaluation and writing skills.
