Research conducted by students in the 3rd and 4th year Longlook programs who encouraged and assisted to participate in structured research projects. These projects focus on clinical governance at their rural site. Projects are informed by rural clinicians and administrators on locally identified clinical quality improvement and clinical audit processes.
Students are supported by rural researchers to complete projects, guide and teach the analysis and dissemination of results.
