We are seeking students to join our multidisciplinary research team. Our team is studying how experienced practitioners make decisions in pharmacy, and how students learn the skills of clinical decision-making in undergraduate and postgraduate education. Despite its importance to pharmacy practice and the education of future pharmacists, clinical decision making remains largely unexplored. We have a number of projects available that will involve learning qualitative and quantitative techniques to gather and analyse interview, survey information from research participants. These projects would suit a potential PhD candidate with an education background who has an interest in health professional education, or a person with a pharmacy background who has teaching experience and an interest in education.
