c) Pre-doctoral Research Bursary
The Research Bursary provides short-term funding to allow clinicians and other health professionals to get involved in research projects early in their career.
The bursary should be used to give you a greater understanding of research before deciding whether to undertake a PhD or MD, and/or give you the time and resources to obtain preliminary data before applying for a PhD or MD.
