The Department of Health Sciences Education (DHSE) welcomed its 2020 cohort of MPhil and PhD students in February. They spent two weeks meeting with their supervisors, discussing research ideas and participated in research workshops. It was an intense two weeks of orientation to MPhil and PhD studies and we wish them well on their new learning journeys.
The Department of Health Science Education invites applications for a full-time research masters (MPhil) in Health Science Education commencing in 2020.
