Applied Research Methods (TNM 802)

 

Applied Research Methods (TNM 700 / 802)

 

Introduction

The Applied Research Methods course is a compulsory attendance course for all postgraduate students in the Faculty of Health Sciences (Honours - TNM 700; Masters, including MMed students, as well as PhD students that have not yet done a formal research methods/protocol writing course - TNM 802).

 

Exemption

If at any time you have already completed such a course or one similar you may ask for exemption by completing the form and sending it to Dr Elize Webb at the School of Health Systems and Public Health ([email protected]). You need to provide the aspects that were covered elsewhere (like a study guide or programme) and proof of “passing” (and not only attending) the course. (e.g. a certificate or academic transcript).

 

 

How to book your place

  1. After registering for the TNM 700 / 802 course at student administration, you will need to book your place on the TNM of your choice (various dates throughout the year) by going to ClickUp and navigating to the TNM pre-course.
  2. Prior to attending the course, you will be required to complete certain prerequisites and some pre-course work which has to be approved by your supervisor and submitted via ClickUp.
  3. The roadmap regarding the above can be found on the course site on ClickUp.
  4. One of the prerequisites includes a session at the Medical Library. You should do this in the months preceding the actual course you plan to attend. Book your place on the TNM 700 / 802 site in Click Up.
  5. So book your place on a TNM course of your choice as well as the Library slot of your choice. Hurry as each course is restricted to between 10 and 30 students!
  6. No bookings will be done for the course within departments or their convenors/secretariat, as in the past. Only bookings via ClickUP will be accepted!
