Training and education

The Center for Medical Research Methodology is involved in teaching and development of several courses within medical research methodology.

Undergraduate courses

The Bachelor thesis course
The Bachelor thesis course is an introductory course in medical research methodology with the main aim of providing medical students with a basic knowledge about medical research methodology and preparing them to write the Bachelor thesis. The course covers topics: study designs in medical research, formulation and testing of scientific hypotheses, health research ethics, scientific article writing and interpretation, and literature search.

Postgraduate courses

Clinical research methodology
Clinical research methodology
is an introductory lecture- and workshop-based course in medical research methodology aimed at first-year PhD students. It covers topics: study designs in medical research, formulation of a scientific hypothesis, practical management of research studies, estimation of adequate study size, data collection, database preparation and data handling, GCP-rules, and bias in medical research. The course is ‘hands-on’ oriented based on the students’ own research projects. 

Questions
The Center for Medical Research Methodology also runs a Q and A service for students engaged or interested in medical research. Please write Simon Francis Thomsen if you wish to post a question about a practical or theoretical problem relating to medical research. This service is primarily for undergraduate and PhD students who, as part of the preparation or execution of a research project, have encountered a problem they wish to discuss.
