On completion of the integrated physiology minor, students will have the knowledge and skills to apply a broad knowledge from the fundamental units of biomedical science, integrating aspects of neuromuscular physiology and research design, in a practical forum of a research project. Students will have the opportunity to apply this theoretical knowledge to practical situations in laboratory simulated learning environments, and community and industry settings, sometimes as part of a research team. Specifically, students will independently design and develop a research proposal which: 1) demonstrates an understanding of the principles of scientific research, experiment/project design; 2) develops skills in accessing, selecting, recording, reviewing and managing research data and research information; 3) critically analyses and synthesizes research data and other information; 4) considers social, cultural, and environmental issues; 5) adopts ethical practice including preparing an application for ethics approval; and 6) communicates information in oral and written forms to a range of associates including supervisors, peers, research teams, community and industry partners.
