Synopsis

This unit is designed to allow students to implement the research protocol developed in the context of the prerequisite unit MAP5000 Research in Advanced Health Care Practice'.

Successful completion of MAP5000 and MAP5010 with an overall grade of 70 Distinction or above may permit a student to apply for a graduate research program including the PhD at Monash University.
