Specific entry requirements
Degree project aims that participants should develop the abilities to independently implement a project with a systematic and scientific approach that clearly demonstrates scholarship in medical teaching and learning. The participants should in accordance with the scholarship model carry out, document and spread knowledge of a project that connects to their own practice and one or more of the main emphases of the Master's programme: academic leadership, educational development work, professional development or subject didactics within medicine/the field of health care
After the course, the participants should be able to
- discuss about the aim and the implications of the scholarship model in relation to own project
- be analytical when discussing one's own and others' projects related to the main subject medical teaching and learning
- be able to identify, explain and examine relevant problems in relation to one's own practice
- show ability to systematically seek knowledge and review relevance in relation to facts/theory and apply the knowledge in the project
- be able to discuss and assess strengths and weaknesses in research design and methodology in own and others' projects
- be able to discuss and argue for how knowledge from the project can be spread and contribute to development
Studies about the scholarship process and different systematic ways to examine the practice will be examined through individual work and will also be discussed jointly between course participant and course directors. The course is brought to an end with the participants publicly discussing one another's work.
Discussion forum during the course will be available on PingPong for participant and supervisors. Joint seminars will be carried on-line and also on campus. Showing activity on the learning platform PingPong and participation in the seminars are obligatory. The course coordinator decides whether, and if so how, absence from compulsory course elements can be compensated. Study results cannot be reported until the student has participated in compulsory course elements or compensated for any absence in accordance with instructions from the course coordinator. Absence from a compulsory course element could mean that the student cannot retake the element until the next time the course is offered. The participant has to take responsibility in following the agreements that are made with the supervisor and course group

Submission dates for revised degree projects - follow dates for announced re-examinations. A degree project that have not passed the regular examination can be re-submitted a maximum of five times. Each time the student submits the degree project to the examiner for assessment counts as an examination. If the student has failed six examinations, no additional examination is given.
