The Bachelor of Health Sciences (Advanced) is a unique degree giving high-achieving students the opportunity to interact with research leaders in health sciences and to understand how research can be translated into clinical practice, other health services, public health interventions or policy, to improve health for everybody.
The Bachelor of Health Sciences (Adv) program management is seeking to link current level 1 (45 students) and Level 2 (15 students) with research active academic staff in the Faculty. There will be an ongoing program of mentorship each year.
The mentoring program can be flexibly adapted to suit local contexts and research activities.
It is a wonderful opportunity to introduce these high calibre students to our faculty’s research from very early on in their degree. It is an expectation that graduates of this degree will continue on into our Honours and HDR programs.
The time commitment for each student is two hours (2 meetings per semester). Students can be grouped and we hope every student will be linked in some way to research active academic/s.
Our investment in these students through the support we provide them as mentors is of immense value for each student, but also beneficial for the Faculty of Health Sciences as we nurture a future cohort of exceptional research students.
If you are interested in becoming a mentor please contact the program coordinator Ms Adriana Milazzo, (firstname.lastname@example.org) by July 10 2015 to register your interest.
