A supervisor in the research curriculum is expected to
- Provide guidance for the development and completion of the medical learner research project.
- Depending on the learner's prior research experience, more hands-on guidance may be required to ensure successful completion of the research project.
- Learners may work in small groups (2-3 students) on the same project.
- Help the learner identify a project that is small and manageable. The goal is to learn about the research process; collecting sufficient data for publication is not a requirement.
- Learners may participate in existing research projects.
- Learners may complete a rapid review or contribute to other types of review.
- Review drafts provided by the learner.
- This is especially important if an application to the human ethics review board is required for the project.
- Assess the learner's deliverable in each phase and submit mark to the UGME office by the due date. Assessment rubrics are provided by the UGME office.
- If you are unable to submit your mark by the specified due date (e.g. due to travel), please contact email@example.com.
- Phase 1: literature review
- Phase 2: research proposal
- Phase 3: report on data collection and analysis
- Communicate and meet with the learner as required. Ideally learner and supervisor should communicate once a month.
- Supervisor and learner should review the checklist provided in each phase outlining the requirements and due dates.
