Registration for this event is closed

The Surgical Interest Group of Monash University Malaysia (SIGMUM) is excited to kickstart our first research themed event of the year 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.
