Engaging Students in Clinical Research

15th May 2021

Update: Registrations have closed for this event.

The Surgical Interest Group of Monash University Malaysia (SIGMUM) is excited to kickstart our first-ever research themed event with Dr. Anil Gandhi, and we want to welcome you to be a part of it!

As medical students, we are no strangers to Evidence-Based Medicine (EBM), yet, many of you may have questions about the ‘bigger picture.’

  • Why and how is research more than just questionnaires & statistics?
  • Why should we learn the foundations and skills of research now?
  • How do we get involved, even as a student?
  • How does research serve as a spearhead for greater prospects and achievements in your medical career?
  • Why is it even important for me to know?

Join our 1.5 hour webinar to get answers to these questions and more.

You will receive an e-certificate after attending this webinar.
