MD Scholarly Intensive Placement (SIP)
As of 2020, the School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine will host approximately sixty fifth-year medical students as part of the MD Scholarly Intensive Placement (SIP).
Projects within the School are aligned with our cutting-edge research and allow students to join our team and make a difference by researching ways to improve treatment or prevent disease and ill-health.
Find out about some of the exciting research undertaken at our School in our Capability Booklet.
The placements are designed so you can achieve a great deal during your time with us. You can read about the experiences of some of our inaugural 2020 student cohort here:
- Tess Aitken co-authored a peer-reviewed article on measuring pandemic preparedness across multiple countries
- Susan Tu co-authored a peer-reviewed article on the economic cost of migraines that got picked up by the Herald Sun
- Michael McLure drew on personal experience with anaphylaxis and co-authored a peer-reviewed article reviewing variation in international treatment guidelines
We want you to join Australia’s largest School of Public Health where your research can help communities, cities and countries by improving treatments or preventing disease.
