No special requirements
Students will undertake a project in the area of either health management, quality, risk, clinical or corporate governance. This may be either conducted in a health industry placement under the supervision of the lecturer and nominated preceptor or undertaken as a research project in a relevant coursework area that the student has selected. Project findings will be reported in either a journal article format or industry report and be presented to either peers and/or members of the host organisation.
Please Note: All students studying at Murdoch University will need to complete the compulsory unit, Murdoch Academic Passport (MAP100), which only takes 2-3 hours to complete online. Find out more: http://goto.murdoch.edu.au/MurdochAcademicPassport.
Supervisors will provide regular feedback on written work during all phases of the project to facilitate student learning and achievement of subject outcomes. The completed project will be submitted as a journal article for publication into an appropriate Journal of your choice or as an organisational report if required by the host industry organisation (structure and referencing format to be guided by the chosen Journal) (5,000 words).
