Department of Medicine postgraduate research scholarships

Tony Hocken Research Award

This is a 12-month research award that is granted annually or as funds allow. It is usually granted for one year.

The award is granted to a registrar to undertake a defined research project. The applicant is expected to enroll for a postgraduate degree (such as MMedSc) during this year. The supervisor of the project should be a member of the Dunedin School of Medicine's Department of Medicine.

The award is funded from earnings from the postgraduate activities of the Department of Medicine. It is therefore supported by the efforts of colleagues in the Department of Medicine, who donate their time and expertise.
