Course Development

The development of the above course included revamping the syllabus, introducing new elements of core epidemiologic methods interspersed with innovative interactive sessions on study critique, debates, and e-learning sessions such as Skype sessions.  Use of a state of the art classroom with tablet pc, several laptop monitors facilitated interactive PowerPoint presentations. Intermittent quiz sessions were also conducted followed by showcasing clinician scientists in the Department of Medicine on the penultimate day. Students learnt to develop their own research proposals.
