Medical Council Summer Studentships Closing Date

Media Statement
For immediate release

10 September 2003


The Medical Council today urged medical students to apply for its 2003/2004 summer studentships applications for which close on Friday, 19 September 2003.

This is the twelfth year that the studentships have been awarded, giving 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 Medical 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.”

Successful applicants will be notified once Council has made its decision in late October.

Past Studentships have included: “Education to Promote Health in Doctors”, “Trust in the Doctor/Patient Relationship”, “The Pattern of Self-medication among New Zealand General Practitioners” and “Review of the Attitudes of the Treaty of Waitangi in Sixth Year Medical Students”.

Students send a progress report on their topic to the Council in January 2004, with a completion date of March 2004, when the final report is presented to the Council.

More information on the Summer Studentships may be found on the Council’s website at
