MMed Protocol Committee

Given the changing requirements for postgraduate qualification, feasible but valid research projects are becoming increasingly important. In order to ensure that academic standards are in order before submission to the ethics committee and to improve the quality of MMed proposals, the MMed Committee was constituted in May 2008. Our task is to provide protocol development support to the various departments and by doing so helping to increase the quality and output of research within the School of Medicine. (MMed students of SHSPH are supervised and evaluated by the SHSPH).
