Becoming a Competitive Applicant: Research

Apply your knowledge!

In healthcare research is constantly improving the quality of care that professionals are able to give their patients. Because of this, it is important that students learn how to analyse information presented by research and be able to apply it to their practices. Research also helps students apply the knowledge they've gained in the classroom in real life, and gives them an opportunity to add to exisiting knowledge. When assisting in a research lab or working on their own research, it is important that students understand the purpose of the research, the question the lab is working on, and their role in it.
