Research continues to be a growing interest amongst medical students both locally and around the country. In modern evidence based healthcare, there is an inescapable need to be ‘research literate’ and to be able to write, interpret and clinically apply research papers and their, sometimes controversial, conclusions. Students are also looking for ways to academically differentiate themselves from the large number of other medical students competing for jobs.
For these reason, the AMSS has created a new committee position of ‘Research Officer’ that will focus on advocating for, educating about and facilitating medical students in research.
