Society holds important expectations of health professionals. Aside from their biomedical training, these include an active critical posture in relation to planning and conducting research aimed at increasing current knowledge, especially that which improves the living conditions and health of the general population.
In this relatively new professional context, IHS – School of Biomedical sciences prepares M.Sc. and Ph.D. Medical students to meet the changing needs of society. IHS University students research is based on the triad of teaching, research and outreach activities and its application to medical training simultaneously require technical and theoretical elements, the maturation of critical thought, development of the capacity for initiative, stimulation of independent self-directed learning and a sound approach to problem-solving, whether basic or clinical science.
Postgraduate research (PR) has become an integral part of medical education in numerous countries and has influenced the subsequent performance of physicians, yielding positive results in the development of important skills, including critical analysis and leadership, whether or not the professional pursues an academic or research career.
According to medical students, post graduate research is motivated mainly by a desire to improve learning, and opportunities for students to participate in the continued advancement of knowledge.
The present work is divided into the extramural project and intramural projects. Please take a look at their respective sections to understand more about it.
