Medical Council Summer Studentships Closing Date

Media Statement

For immediate release
31 August 2004


The Council today urged medical students to apply for its 2004/2005 summer studentships applications for which close on Friday, 24 September.

This is the thirteenth year that the studentships have been awarded, giving up to four

New Zealand medical students the chance to complete a piece of research for which a grant of $5,000 each is available.

Medical Council chief executive Sue Ineson said, "The studentships aim to raise medical students' awareness of the work of the Council and the qualities of medical practitioners, which contribute to the highest standards of medical ethics, conduct and care of patients.

"To apply for a studentship, medical students must submit a plan, in consultation with a supervisor, on a topic that takes standards, ethics, conduct and care of patients into account."

This year the Council is suggesting student's research one of the following:

* Internet medicine

* The apprenticeship model, where doctors learn by doing rather than being taught

* Complementary and alternative medicine

* The implementation and impact of the Health Practitioners Competence Assurance Act

* The experiences of overseas doctors in their postgraduate year.

* Issues surrounding medical certification

* The implications of an ageing workforce.

Students may choose their own topics.

Successful applicants will be notified once the Council has made its decision in late September or early October.

Students send a progress report on their topic to the Council in January 2005, with a completion date of March 2005, when the final report is presented to the Council.

More information and application forms for the Summer Studentships may be found on the Council's website at under News and Issues.
