ObjectivesEach project undertaken must be based on a protocol approved by the fellow's supervisor in consultation with the course coordinator. Most students use the protocol developed in the Research Protocol Design course (EPID6600) or the Health Promotion Project course (HPRO6780) as the basis of their minor thesis, so the hard work of justifying the issues, designing the methodology and choosing appropriate analyses has already been done.
