 What is research?

Research is a systematic study or re-searching the facts and principles, conducted in the interest of the humanity. Barriers to participation in research in day to day practice  include lack of time, lack of resources, trial-specific issues, communication difficulties, conflicts between the role of clinician and scientist, inadequate research experience and training.

            Selecting an appropriate research methodology and relevant methods for   dissertation work is one of the key decisions for novice researchers.


The workshop will create opportunities to learn about issues such as, how research paradigm implies research methodology , selecting  the right  research design  and research methods, and scientific writing.

The workshop has a strong interactive focus, covering  a mixture of topics such as  

  1. Role of Research  in academics and clinical practice in the specialty of Oral Medicine and Radiology.
  2. Research methodology
  3. Tips on Funding opportunities and  Scientific writing 

Who can attend?

The post graduate students  and the faculty / clinicians interested in understanding the role of research in their practice, in the process of  scientific writing, looking for integrating research in day to day practice, or  looking for proposal writing for grants,  are invited to attend this preconference workshop.
