The Honours program at the Department of General Practice involves two subjects of Advanced Coursework and a Research Project.

  • The Advanced Coursework subjects consist of classes to provide the student with:

    > and an understanding of both processes and skills which are essential to the conduct of human research in the primary care setting.
  • The Research Project subject requires the students to undertake an original supervised project and provides the student with valuable research skills.
