Advanced Research Training 2007-08 Finishes

Entry for 25 February 2008:

The last of the 3 two-way advanced research courses for PhD-level students finished last Saturday (installments 1 and 2 were in December and January respectively). This has been the first chance I’ve had to teach the range of material I’ve been covering in the Clinical Research Methods course that I taught at the University of Toledo from 1979 to 2005. It was a real pleasure to teach to such clinically-experienced students, and it was really helpful having contributions from John McLeod, Beth Freire and Mick Cooper for the three short courses. We had some great discussions along the way. The participants set up a research support network and began helping each other, e.g., with data rating. The 2-day short-course models seems to have worked. And our research PhD students now seem to be tooled up for a variety of research projects.
