The Master of Health Sciences (Primary Care) will equip students to successfully develop and carry out a piece of research within the primary care setting, and in doing so develop relevant expertise in research methodology. Students are drawn from a wide range of health and social care professions.
The programme runs for one calendar year from September to August. Each student is assigned a dedicated thesis supervisor with whom they will work closely throughout the year. Individual research is supported by ten days of workshops in Galway (two consecutive weekdays in each of September, October, November, February and April). The topics covered during workshops include:
- Advanced qualitative research methods
- Computer packages: SPSS, Nvivo and Endnote
- Evidence Based Research
- Research ethics
- How to write a research paper

"The process of completing this academic programme has made me more confident, but what is more important is that I have learned to see the world from a different perspective and to be more objective and critical about the way I think."
