Research and Grant Writing Skills Training Workshop

The College is going to organize the second "Research and Grant Writing Skills Training Workshop" in April 2015. This workshop is aimed to support both the trainees planning for research projects as part of their specialist training, as well as more experienced researchers considering submissions to Health and Medical Research Fund (HMRF). The objective of this workshop is to facilitate attendants, through guidance at their research planning and proposal stage to commence with a solid start, or to apply such skills in the near future.

This workshop is designed to provide expert consultation to attendants through working with them on individual proposed projects, providing information, advice and step-by-step guidance on research design and methodology, and on grant writing skills for those planning such submissions.

As a prerequisite for participation, applicants are required to submit a brief summary of their research proposal detailing title and literature review of their research topic, study design, methodology and outcome measures, at the time of their application. Each application will be reviewed and rated by the organizing committee, and successful applicants will be notified 4 weeks prior to the start of the workshop. If appropriate, the organizer may facilitate those with similar study design to work as small groups to learn and provide support for each other.

If you are interested, please email summary of your research proposal and application form to ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ) or fax (2636 0020) to register. As spaces are limited for this workshop, we will operate on a "first come, first served' policy. Deadline for application is 16th February 2015.
